Art and Experience: Iranian director Javad Darai’s acclaimed short film “Limit” has won the award for best drama at the NCCC (Niagara County Community College) Film and Animation Festival in Sanborn in the U.S. state of New York north of the city of Buffalo.
The film tells the story of a desperate man who frantically pleads with strangers to accompany him to his home, without being clear on his intentions.
“Limit” has been screened at numerous international events and has won awards at some of them, including the award for best short fiction at the 10th Southampton Film Week and the Bleedingham Horror Short Film Festival in last November.
The NCCC Film and Animation Festival was held on May 5 and the “KCLOC” by Ninaad Kulkarni from India won the best animation award, the organizers announced last week.
