Art and Experience: Iranian short ‘Birthday Night’ by Omid Shams has made it into the screening program of the 3rd Global Youth Film Festival in Bangladesh.
Directed by Omid Shams, ‘Birthday Night’ is about Ahmad and Ali, two friends and business partners, who go through a dramatic turn of events on their birthday night through which they begin to learn more about each other.
