Iran’s ‘Son of the Sea’ has grabbed an award at the 2019 edition of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France.
‘Son of the Sea’, directed by Abbas Jalali-Yekta, won the City of Annecy Award at the gala.
“A man lives in a house with his wife and the illusion of their son on the wall! This hallucination gradually creates complications in their life,” a synopsis for the film reads.
‘Son of the Sea’ was screened at the “Perspectives Short Films in Competition” section of the French festival.
Iranian films ‘Am I a Wolf?’, ‘Trailer’, and ‘Starvation’ also competed at the event.
The Annecy International Animated Film Festival was held in France’s southeastern city of Annecy on June 10-15, 2019.
