Art and Experience: Several films from Iran will be screened at the Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) running in the American state from August 7 to 12.

Animations “Run Rustam Run” by Hossein Molayemi, “Maned and Macho” by Shiva Sadeq-Asadi, as well as the documentary “Amour Du Reel” by Iman Behruzi, are among the Iranian films competing in the event, the organizers have announced.

In “Run Rustam Run”, national hero Rustam comes to contemporary Tehran, in order to make up for what he has done to his own son.

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

The documentary “Amour Du Reel” shows a filmmaker who returns to his family home in Shiraz, after several years living abroad to make a film for the woman he loves.

The festival is organized every year by the Flickers Arts Collaborative, a non-profit arts organization.
