The 2019 East Northeast International Film Festival (ENE) in the US has set to screen Iranian short animation ‘Starvation’.
Directed by Zahra Rostampour, the 7-minute animated piece offers a different point of view of the wolf as a villain in fairytale stories.
A hungry wolf gets stuck in stereotypes about being the big bad wolf of the story. She has to flee when everybody accuses her of violence and murder. She faces the danger of getting killed.
‘Starvation’ has so far gone on screen at a number of global events, including the 19th Monstra Lisbon Animated Film Festival in Portugal, the 14th Athens Animfest in Greece, and the 7th DC Web Fest, the 2019 Queens World Film Festival, as well as the 28th Arizona International Film Festival in the US.
Set to vie at the 2019 Annecy Festival in France, the animation has won awards such as Best Film award at Short Competition section of the December 2018 Independent Talents International Film Festival.
Rostampour is a 2D animator and visual artist from Iran. She holds a degree in Animation Directing and has several years of professional experience in animation and motion graphic.
The ENE celebrates independent films, music, and the green technology industry all at the crossroads of the future to be a part of a diverse and creative global community.
The 2019 ENE is slated for August 23-September 2 in Newburgh, New York, the US.
