‘Alphabet’ goes to 2 intl. film festivals
Art and Experience: Iranian short animation ‘Alphabet’ directed by Kianoush Abedi has been accepted into the screening programs of two international film festivals in Italy and the US.
‘Alphabet’ will vie at the 7th edition of Nebrodi Film Festival to be held on 13-15 July 2018 in Messina, Italy.
The Iranian animated piece will also take part at the 2nd edition of Palm Springs Intl. Animation Festival & Expo scheduled for 22-26 August 2018 in California, the US.
The 6-minute animated piece ‘Alphabet’, directed by Kianoush Abedi, narrates the story of people who have forgotten life and are separated from knowledge and truth. The animation depicts a nation that has forgotten the alphabet to life, cannot see, cannot hear, and cannot speak, but the words are waiting for them impatiently.
The ‘Alphabet’ has recently snatched two awards at the 5th Speechless Film Festival in US and the 5th Festival Sayulita in Mexico.
