‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ goes to London Kurdish Film Festival
Art and Experience:
Iranian animation ‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ directed by Ziba Arzhang took part in the 12th edition of the London Kurdish Film Festival in the UK.
The synopsis of ‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ read, “Something seems to be going great for the village. The sun is up and bright but suddenly something happens that casts darkness everywhere.”
‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ is a symbolic 6-minute animation without dialogue. The animation has 12 characters, all of whom are considered to be the main characters because they work together to rebuild their world.
The animation is based on the tiled designs of a Moavenolmolk Tekyeh monument in Kermanshah. And parts of the public space of this building have been used in the film. This building is from the works of the Qajar period and the remarkable and exceptional advantage of this building is in its tiling; According to Kermanshah cultural heritage experts, embossed and semi-embossed tiles with very beautiful designs and 100% natural colours used in this building are unique in the world.
Launched in 2001, the London Kurdish Film Festival (LKFF) is the biggest film festival of its kind, bringing together films from Kurdistan and the rest of the world to film audiences in London.
LKFF is managed and produced by a team of volunteers. The festival has come a long way since its inception, leaving behind 11 successful editions, each growing in magnitude and significance.
