The movie will be showcased at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival held in Toronto from April 23 till May 03.
As its presence in earlier international events, The House in the Fog was screened at the 4th edition of the Iranian Film Festival held from January 7-11, 2015 in Czech Republic.The film recounts the story of a woman, named Sorayya, who lives her life of solitude in a 100 year old mansion in an idyllic hilly landscape where she seems to miss no one and her daily chores make her life meaningful. The house is the only reason she tolerates all the hardships of living alone in wild nature. But as huge as the mansion would be for its only inhabitant, it may be just fit for the secrets and ghosts of her past that follow her.
