Pure White paints a portrait of Parviz Fannizadeh, a towering figure in Iranian cinema and theater, who rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s. Tabrizi and Noori interview some of Iran’s most well-known directors and critics, such as Masoud Kimiaie and Said Noori, and even incorporate archival interviews with other directors, like Naser Taghvaie and Bahram Beyzaie.
These interviews and the stunning footage of Fannizadeh’s acting on stage and in film are visual testimonies to the talent of this great thinker and exceptional actor. Although he only lived to be 42 years old, the record of his grace, presence, and art will always endure. His unforgettable role as Mash Ghasem in Naser Taghvaie’s Uncle Napoleon is forever embedded in viewers’ minds.
