Iran short film ‘Limit’ has succeeded to win Best Short Film Award from Unknown Film Festival in Russia.
The director of the flick, Javad Daraei, received the award from the jury members of the Russian film event.
'Limit' chronicles the story of a man in a quiet neighborhood, who asks the people around to help him, when all of a sudden, somebody goes into his home.
Daraei adopts a spiritual viewpoint in his movies, this time utilizing a narrative that aims at challenging the status quo regarding the rights of the disabled.
His film, ‘Limit’, depicts the trials and tribulations of handicapped people in their daily lives; issues that irk them given all the snap judgment around.
It has won three awards from three international festivals, namely the 7th St Cloud Film Fest and the 2nd Miami FearFest in the US, and the best foreign short film prize at the international Hollywood Hills Awards.
The award for best foreign short film at the 3rd Tryon International Film Festival in the US, the award for best picture at the 6th Bleedingham short horror film festival in the US, and the award for Best Fiction at the 10th Southampton Film Week 2017 in the UK are among the honors achieved by ‘Limit’.
