Directed by Zhivar Farajzadeh, the five-minute flick follows a day in the life of Serok, a young boy, forced to stand in as the shepherd for his father's flock during the summer.
“No matter where we live or what we do, financial struggles usually impact the children most - education suffers; dreams take a back seat. We hope that, at least, Serok gets the opportunity to become a policeman and drive his car. Only time will tell,” a brief plot of the film reads.
Some of the global events attended by ‘Serok’ include the CinéStudent International Film Festival in France, the Inshort Film Festival in the UK, the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival in the US, the International Children’s Rights Film Festival in Turkey, the Covellite International Film Festival in the US, the Busan International Kids and Youth Film Festival in South Korea, the Cefalù Film Festival in Italy, the Realtime International Film Festival in Nigeria, and the Golden Bull Film Festival in Turkey.
The BIAFF aims to support amateur films by providing them with an opportunity to go on screen.
The festival, each year, receives around 250 movies from all around the world.
The 2022 edition of the event is scheduled for April 22-24.
