The series will debut in the festival's International Panorama section, a 12-title competitive section where it will be eligible for the best series, director, actress, actor, student jury and audience awards, according to a report by Variety.

The show tires to highlight intergenerational trauma, the relationships between fathers and sons and an elderly man's hope to find love. The show encompasses a world of supernatural beings and otherworldly events as well.

Abbasi told Variety about the nature of the show, stating: "What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to have a soul, and does it survive us? How does one find hope and joy in a perpetual state of limbo? These are the central concerns of Barzakh.

The director had previously helmed the hit show Churails and the feature film Cake.
