‘Alphabet’ to go on screen at two 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 Mexico and USA.
Iranian short animation ‘Alphabet’ will vie at Muestra Movimiento Audiovisual, to be held on September 17-29 in Guadalajara of Mexico, and forth edition of Miami WIdescreenFest on August 3-5.
Directed by Kianoush Abedi, ‘Alphabet’ is a 3D animated production of Iran’s Documentary and Experimental Film Center in late 2017.
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.
‘Alphabet’ has so far joined some international film events, winning a number of awards, including the best short film award at the 5th Sayulita Film Festival in Mexico, the Best Experimental and Animation award at the 6th Speechless Film Festival as well as the 15th Southside Film Festival in the US, and the 5th edition of Tripoli Film Festival in Lebanon.
