Fereydoun Farrokhzad was an Iranian natural treasure and tragic hero, a superstar in pre-revolutionary Iran. Through his poetry, music and variety shows, he captured the hearts of the Iranian people. His TV show, Silver Carnation, was so popular it emptied the streets throughout Iran. He was known to be a true patriot to those who knew him.
30 years after his brutal death, his huge community of fans and friends are still seeking answers. His fate exemplifies the dark shadow that the Iranian revolution still casts over Iranians in the world today. The story of his life reads like a spy novel ending in a pool of blood in Bonn, Germany 1992.
Royal Knight Productions takes great care and pride in telling the story of Fereydoun Farrokhzad to those who did not know him and delivers a fresh reminder to those who do. “Silver Carnation” (Persian title “Mikhake Noghreie”) integrates a cast of award winning Iranian and international actors, a seasoned production team, and an excellent script that brings to life this poignant and tragic story.
