The 2019 Zlin Film Festival in Czech Republic is scheduled to host Iranian animation ‘Am I a Wolf?’.
The animated piece directed by Amir-Houshang Moein, will be screened at the competition section of the 2019 edition of the festival.
The 8-minute award-winning animation was able to successfully take home numerous awards at the 11th Tehran International Animation Festival (TIAF) last week.
Based on the fantasy book by Afsaneh Shabannejad, the animation is a recreation of the classic fable of ‘The Wolf and the Lamb’,
In ‘Am I a Wolf?’, a number of students are performing a theater called ‘The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats’. Everybody has a role.
They are totally getting carried away by their roles in a way that the border between reality and theatrical performance is now hardly realized.
Meanwhile, the child acting as the wolf in the story is scripted to be defeated. That makes him feel lonely and annoyed.
As he takes his role too seriously, a bit of chaos startles the group. In the end, the presence of other children and his friends next to him take him out of this atmosphere.
The 59th edition of the event which kicked off on May 24, will continue until June 1, 2019.
