‘Lantouri’ is a social drama film directed by acclaimed movie director Reza Dormishian about contemporary Iranian struggles. It was premiered in the Panorama section at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival and in the Discoveries section of the 32nd Warsaw Film Festival. 2016 Farsi feature film ‘Lantouri’ takes its name from a street gang in Tehran that robs and kidnaps people in broad daylight and presents the story of throwing acid to the face of a young active journalist in Tehran. The cast includes Navid Mohammadzadeh, Maryam Palizban, Baran Kosari, Mehdi Kooshki and Bahram Afshari. 

Reza Dormishian is one of the most prominent and distinguished directors of the new generation of the Iranian cinema. Dormishian's films have been received well by the viewers, critics, and international festivals due to their unique social themes and modern structure. However Dormishian's films have faced many protest from the government and domestic extremist groups.
