Iranian short film ‘Pedovore’ is slated to vie at the Shahr International Film Festival.
Directed by Mohammad Kart, the film is to compete at the short film section of the festival.
‘Pedovore’ is a social drama which zeros in on the issues of the youngsters dealing with problems like child labor, bad parenting or having no parents at all.
A brief synopsis of the film reads, ‘No one takes a child’s love seriously, while it is the purest. Nothing is as magnificent and robust as a kid’s love.’
The Shahr International Film Festival is Iran's most important cinematic event related to urban management in promotion of appropriate urban and industrial life patterns.
It is organized annually by the Urban Image Institute, the Artistic and Cultural Organization of Tehran Municipality.
