Iran’s animation ‘Nobody’ grabs award in Colombia
Art and Experience: Iran’s short animation ‘Nobody’, directed by Elham Toroqi, has won the special jury award at this year’s edition of the Bogota’s Animal Cinema Fest in Colombia.
‘Nobody’ received the “Special Mention of the Jury” at the Bogota festival, which screens films about animals and is aimed to demonstrate the unjust treatment of animals.
