Iranian short animation ‘Alphabet’ has been set to go on the silver screen at the second edition of Malatesta Short Film Festival in Italy.
‘Alphabet’ is to represent Iran at the Best Animation section of the Italian film event.
Directed by Kianoush Abedi, the 6-minute animated piece depicts a nation that has forgotten the alphabet of living. They cannot see, cannot hear, and cannot speak, but the words are waiting for them eagerly.
