Prominent female Iranian filmmaker Pouran Derakhshandeh is planning to make a new project featuring the life of three actors who starred in her movies. Derakhshandeh will produce a movie titled We Three adapted from a true story on the life of leading actors in her three movies A Little Bird of Happiness (1987), Relationship (1986), Eternal Children (2006). Ali-Reza Rezaian, Atieh Ma’asoumi, Ali Ahmadifar are the three actors whose life will be mirrored in Derakhshandeh’s screen creation. We Three will present the effects of cinema on the life of these three persons who had gone in front of the camera for the first time in Derakhshandeh’s project.
The film depicts the current situation of the actors who are not playing in cinema anymore; Rezaian is now married with two kids and working in a bicycle company. Ma’asoumi is working as a shopkeeper and Ahmadifar has joined a Sindrom Down society in Canada and now living there.The 61-year-old filmmaker Derakhshandeh was honored by Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance for her life-long cinematic activities and efforts to reveal the true identity of Muslim Iranian women in 2011. “My films are about those who have been forgotten. Family and children have always been the central themes of my films and I expect the ministry to help me finance my independent projects,” she had earlier said on introducing her works. Iranian director, producer, screenwriter and researcher, Pouran Derakhshandeh graduated in film directing from Tehran's School of Television and Cinema in 1975. Relationship (1986), A Little Bird of Happiness (1987), Passing Through the Dust (1988), Lost Time (1989), Love Without Border (1998), A Candle in the Wind (2003), Wet Dream (2005) and Eternal Children (2006) are among her better-known films.
