Art and Experience:  “Lotus”, a documentary by Iranian filmmaker Mohammadreza Vatandoost, will be competing in the Cervino Cine Mountain Festival in Italy, the organizers have announced.

The doc tells the story of an old woman who is waiting for a permit to enter an island to visit her son’s grave.

Films from the U.S., Austria, Slovenia, France and Italy will be competing in the festival, which will be held in Aosta from August 4 to 12.

“Lotus”, which has been produced at the Documentary and Experimental Film Center, was screened in June at the Sheffield Doc Fest, UK’s premier documentary festival.
