Iranian short film 'Forouzan' has been scheduled to go on the silver screen at the 21st edition of the FRESCO International Film Festival in Armenia.
Directed by Abbas Khosravinejad, the flick is to represent Iran at the Armenian film event.
‘Forouzan’ narrates the story of a young woman whose husband has recently passed away. She lives with her two young children in a village and protects a herd of sheep against the attack of thieves at night.
The short was recognized as Best Narrative Short at the Independent Shorts Awards in Los Angeles, the US.
The FRESCO Film Festival is an annual event which is a great opportunity for the reassessment of the spiritual and cultural heritage; for cultural dialogue with people of other countries; for self-knowledge and raising the national consciousness in this context.
The 2018 edition of the event is slated for June 22-July 1 in Armenia.
