Directed by Barzan Rostami, the short animation will join the competition at the 2nd edition of the Brazilian fest.
‘Balance’ tells the story of some soldiers who are willing to give away their own lives in a heroic action to save the lives of others.
The short animation has already taken part in a number of global events, including the Southport International Short Film Festival in the UK, the Durango Independent Film Festival in the US, the Piggy Bank Film Festival in India, and the Filmkreis Shorts in Germany.
According to the official website of the Brazilian festival, the event is on the mission “to reunite animation's artists, researchers and fans at this event that reframes the past, glimpses the future and animates the present!”
The upcoming edition of the Animatiba is to be held on September 1-15, 2021.
