Art and Experience: Two Iranian animations will be competing in the Monstra Lisbon Animated Film Festival, which will be held in the Portuguese capital from March 8 to 18.

“Maned & Macho” by Shiva Sadeq-Asadi will be competing in the short film category, while “The Third Script” by Javad Khajavi will be screened in the student category, the organizers announced.

“Maned and Macho” is about a girl’s repressed emotions and instincts, which are embodied in some animals that come out of her dreams.

Letters, words and other calligraphic-related elements have been used as metaphors to explain the unexplainable secrets of the universe in “The Third Script”.
