The 2019 East Northeast International Film Festival (ENE) in the US has scheduled to screen Iranian short ‘Slow Death’.
Written and directed by Amin Sahraee, the short film is a thriller about a segment of the life of a girl in old Tehran.
“On a dark night, a young girl’s mother and brother are at home. Before going to bed, Talaat, the young girl, tells a frightening tale. Her brother is too scared to get water from the kitchen. So Talaat goes to get the water. But when she returns to the room, her mother and brother have disappeared. Suddenly, a woman and a man unknown to her enter the room. Who are they? And then Talaat finds out the truth,” a synopsis for the film reads.
The social drama was awarded at the Eurasia International Monthly Film Festival in Russia and the Tehran International Short Film Festival in Iran.
The 12-minute flick is also set to go on screen at the 15th Early Bird International Film Festival in Bulgaria in November 2019.
The 2019 ENE will also screen ‘The Last Embrace’ and ‘The Man Who Forgot to Breathe’ by Saman Hosseinpour, ‘Starvation’ by Zahra Rostampour, ‘Are You Volleyball?!’ by Mohammad Bakhshi, ‘Birthday Night’ by Omid Shams, ‘Oblivion’ by Fatemeh Mohammadi, as well as ‘Slaughter’ co-directed by Saman Hosseinpour and Ako Zand-Karimi, all from Iran.
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 re-scheduled to be held on October 10-14 in Newburgh, New York, the US.
