‘The Unseen’ to go on screen at Krakow Film Festival
Art and Experience: Iranian Animation Documentary ‘The Unseen’ by Behzad Nalbandi will take part in the 60th edition of Krakow Film Festival (KFF) in Poland.
Directed and written by Behzad Nalbandi, ‘The Unseen’ is about a time when Tehran hosts foreign dignitaries, the local authorities clean up Tehran’s urban image through an ‘urban beautification’ process which includes the rounding up of unsavory characters from the city streets; i.e. drug addicts and prostitutes. The men are released after a few days but the women are kept as wards of the state in perpetuity.
‘The Unseen’ also took part in the 35th International Documentary Film Festival Munich in Germany.
Krakow Film Festival is one of the oldest events in the world dedicated to documentary, animated and short feature films. Its core consists of four competitions of equal rank: documentary film competition, short film competition, national competition, and music documentary film competition DocFilmMusic.
