Director Soheil Abdollahi shot his debut film "24 Hours" on location in
Cambodia and Thailand.

11 Oct – Cambodia is fast becoming one of the most sought-after filming locations for filmmakers across the globe.

Recently, an Iranian director has just finished shooting his debut horror movie "24 Hours" at various locations in Cambodia, as reported on Tehran Times.

It is not revealed where exactly the shooting took place but it is assumed that the nation's lush green forest serves as the background, since director Soheil Abdollahi shared that the movie follows Kimia Madani, an Iranian psychologist well-known for his treatment of masochism, on his journey to conduct a study on the infamous Suicide Forest in Japan.

Abdollahi told the Persian service of MNA that the movie, which is produced by his Istanbul-based studio Rastak Film, is currently being completed in Iran.

Aside from Cambodia, Thailand was also used as one of the filming locations for the horror movie.

There is no word yet on whether Abdollahi will screen the movie in Southeast Asia but he is hoping to premiere it at next February's Fajr Film Festival in Tehran.
