Four intl. film festivals to screen Iran’s ‘Alphabet’
Art and Experience: Iranian short animation ‘Alphabet’ directed by Kianoush Abedi will go on screen at four international film festivals.
The 11th Iranian Film Festival in San Francisco, the 3rd edition of Slemani International Film Festival in Iraq, 2018 Revolution Me Film Festival in New York City and Alexandre Trauner Art/Film Festival in Hungary are four events that will screen Iranian short movie ‘Alphabet’.
The 6-minute animated piece 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.
