‘Double’ to vie at Mirror Mountain Filmfest. in Canada
Art and Experience: Iranian short film ‘Double’ directed by Ronak Jafari has made it into the competition section of the 2019 Mirror Mountain Film Festival in Canada.
Jafari’s fiction debut tells the tale of a young woman, Pegah, who “finds herself plunging to her death at the edge of an eerie marsh in the middle of the mysterious mountains. Her abstract unreal identity is revealed when she coincidentally meets another woman, Matin. The look of the two women in the story challenges the matter of their false and true identities. A kind of inversion.”
The 26-minute film was nominated for Best Film of Short Films Competition at the 40th Moscow International Film Festival in Russia.
Mirror Mountain Film Festival will be held on 26-27 July 2019 at Arts Court Theatre in Ottawa, Canada.
