Tehran, YJC. The first episode of a trilogy depicting the life of Prophet Muhammad filmed in Iran, was screened for the first time on Monday in Tehran.

Several officials attended the screening, including Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Ali Jannati, the adviser to Iran's president, Hesam al-Din Ashena, Head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) Mohammad Sarafraz and a number of the country's cultural officials.

The movie has been directed by Oscar-nominated Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi.

Majidi was accompanied by a number of internationally-acclaimed professionals, including Academy Award winning visual effects supervisor and filmmaker Scott E. Anderson, three-time Oscar-winning Italian director of photography Vittorio Storaro and renowned Croat production designer Milijen Kreka Kljakovic in producing the movie.

Academy Award-winning Indian music composer Allah-Rakha Rahman has written music for the movie.

Known for his musical versatility, Rahman has innovated with different instruments and sounds to create some of India's best-known musical hits for nearly two decades.

The use of eastern themes in Rahman’s music has apparently made Majidi to single out the renowned Indian composer for his latest movie.

Majid Majidi is an internationally and critically acclaimed Iranian film director, film producer, and screen writer whose films have touched on many themes and genres and has won many international awards.
