Let’s get updated with latest on Iranian art of cinema.

Let’s get updated with the latest events in Iranian art of cinema during the past week.

Iran’s ‘The Rotation’ won an award at the International Festival of Children and Youth Animated Film in Serbia. Directed and produced by Hazhir Asadi, the 7-minute animation received the first award at the student films section of the Serbian event.

‘The Rotation’ shows two tribes that engage in a tug-of-war to possess the sun and moon. None of the sides can defeat the other and their conflict wreaks havoc on the Earth’s climate. An eventual ceasefire brings temporary stability and harmony until unexpected events renew the cycle of conflict and destruction. It is a film about the futility of war and the folly of human efforts to dominate nature.

Iranian feature film ‘That Night’s Train’ won two awards at the Muslim International Film Festival in Canada. Hamidreza Qotbi’s movie grabbed awards for the best feature film and best audiences’ choice at the second edition of the festival. ‘That Night’s Train’ was the only film that managed to win two awards at this event.

The 85-minute movie tells the story of a little girl who meets a female writer on a train. The writer promises to call and visit her later. The promise, in the writer’s mind, is just a theme for her new story, but so serious for the little kid. To overcome the sadness, the kid endures, her father who is an author himself comes to rescue. The events that follow make the border between reality and fantasy blurry and obscure.

Iranian feature ‘The Badger’ bagged two awards at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival in Canada, “the most important and renown” nonviolent film festival in the world. Directed by Kazem Mollaee, the movie won the Best Feature Film award at the 10th edition of the Canadian festival. The award was shared by four other films. ‘The Badger’ also won the Best Screenplay award. The award was also shared by another film from Hungary.

“Right before Soodeh Sharifzadegan’s second marriage, her 11-year-old son, Matiar is kidnapped. After considerable effort, Soodeh is forced to ask for the ransom money from her ex-husband. After Matiar’s release, Soodeh, being curious, comes to the sudden realization that it was all her son’s plan to lay the ground for his father’s return,” a synopsis for ‘The Badger’ reads.

Iranian short film ‘Barter’ grabbed the Best Screenplay award at the 2021 Linz International Short Film Festival in Austria.

Co-directed by Ziba Karamali and Emad Arad, the short film tells the story of an adolescent boy who leads his family to get involved in some incidents just because he wants to hide his secret.
