The Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) in South Africa has been slated to host Iranian short film ‘The Savior’.

The Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) in South Africa has been slated to host Iranian short film ‘The Savior’.

Directed by Soheila Pour-Mohammadi, the short film will be among the flicks to compete at the 43rd edition of the African event.

‘The Savior’ tells the story of a little kid who is traumatized following the death of her mother.

After the tragic incident, the child cannot stand the death of other living creatures.

Her father is a fisherman. When the man brings home the fish, he notices that his daughter takes them back to the sea. She says she needs to save them as they are dying.

The film has already taken part in a number of international events, including the Beijing International Children’s Film Festival in China, the Meihodo International Youth Visual Media Festival in the US, and the International Women Filmmakers Festival in Turkey.The DIFF is powered by the Centre for Creative Arts at the University of Kwazulu-Natal. It fulfils a facilitative function as a promoter of the film industry, creating networking and cultural exchange platforms.

The event gives room to intellectual and creative dialogue to start conversations that trigger innovation and question the world we live in and the lenses through which history is portrayed during a time of conflict and extreme racial tensions.

This year’s edition of the film event is set for July 21-30.
