started his film and television career more than 30 years ago and is excited with his current project Mikhake Noghreie (Silver Carnation).
An Iranian natural treasure and tragic hero, Fereydoun Farrokhzad, was 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.
Twenty-eight 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 knew him. “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.
“Silver Carnation” / Mikhake Noghreie opened in theaters on July 23, 2021 with great success. It will be a treasured story for many generations to come. We appreciate your support in bringing Silver Carnation to its fruition, allowing us to create unity and awareness to the world.
