Directed by Mohmmad Poustindouz, the film is to vie at the 11th Corti a Point Short Film Festival.
Based on a loose adaptation of a short story by Argentinean writer Fernando Sorrentino, called ‘There’s a Man in the Habit of Hitting me on the Head with an Umbrella’, the ‘Gray Umbrella’ is the story of a man with a bad habit, until a man with an umbrella enters his life.
