Photocall for the film “Holy Spider” at the 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes

Jessica Martins was effusive about the project. “I’ve always been drawn to stories about family,” she said. “And for some reason, I keep finding myself making films about fathers and their sons! In North Star, Jim has pulled no punches, delving deep into his own personal family history to craft an incredibly compelling tale about love, loss and the life we live between.”By choosing a female protagonist, a journalist who comes all the way from Tehran and is forced to fight just about every minute of her life, even when trying to book a hotel room, Abbasi shows a society that has already made up its mind. Apparently, violence can be forgiven if there is a “reason” for it, and you can’t blame a decent family man for trying to save his children from the presence of “corrupted” women.
