Co-directed by Saman Hosseinpour and Ako Zand-Karimi, the short film ‘Slaughter’ has been selected to vie at the FOKUS film festival in Denmark.
The Iranian film will compete against nine other contestants.
In ‘Slaughter’, we meet a family in a village in Iran. Facing a tough winter, father of the family, Qasem, decides to sell their only cow. The son who is emotionally attached to the cow lets it loose to stop the slaughter.
‘Slaughter’ has competed in a number of international and domestic festivals, including the International Student Film Festival in Bulgaria.
The FOKUS video art festival is an annual festival for video art that presents 5-6 Danish and international exhibitions every year; the exhibitions give visitors the opportunity to encounter experimental and innovative art.
The ninth edition of the FOKUS international festival is set for February 28- March 31, 2019, in Copenhagen.
