Iranian short film ‘Are you Volleyball?!’ is slated to be screened at the Pop Corn Festival del Corto in Italy.
Directed by Mohammad Bakhshi, the short film will represent Iran at the main competition section of the event.
The film features a group of Arabic-speaking asylum seekers who try to make their way to the border in an English speaking country.
They get into a conflict with border guards every day up until a deaf-mute child becomes a catalyst for better communication between the two sides.
Late Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami’s ‘Taste of Berry’ is another short film to vie at the 2019 edition of the Italian festival.
The Pop Corn Festival del Corto is a short film competition open to all national and international video makers.
The 3rd edition of the event will take place in Italy on July 25-28, 2019. The theme this year is "Life: worth of a choice".
