Queens World Filmfest to screen Iran ‘Sluggish Life’
Art and Experience: Iran short Film ‘Sluggish Life’ has been scheduled to go on the silver screen at the 9th edition of Queens World Film Festival in the US.
Directed by Mohsen Mehri, the flick is to represent Iran at the American film event and attends the competition section of the festival.
The short film deals with the strange life of one person through an experimental approach.
So far, ‘Sluggish Life’ has taken part in two international film festivals including Watersprite Film Festival in the UK and Chennai Int’l Film Festival in India.
Founded in 2011, Queens World Film Festival includes an annual multi day/multi venue festival, youth-oriented educational initiatives and year round screening opportunities for filmmakers, past and present. The festival is programmed in thematic blocks with evocative titles, and each program is followed by a post-screening dialogue to engage audiences from the demographically diverse communities that comprise the borough of Queens.
The 2019 edition of the event is slated for March 21-31.
