The 14th edition of the Sole Luna Doc Film Festival in Italy has honored Iranian documentary ‘Light, Shadow, Life’.
The Iranian doc received Special mention to the best short doc at the Italian event.
The jury unanimously awarded a Special Mention to ‘Light, Shadow, Life’ for the intensity, modesty and sincerity with which the director, using a direct but also original and poetic language, tells a “private” story, involving in a universal way the conscience and the indifference of the spectator towards his “neighbor”, the festival’s website wrote.
Directed by Shahriar Pourseyyedian, ‘Light, Shadow, Life’ is about the life of a young man with an intellectual disability who lives with his artist father.
The Iranian doc has gone on screen at the13th Kazan International Festival of Muslim Cinema in the Republic of Tatarstan and received an honorary award at the International Slavonic Film Festival Zolotoy Vityaz in Russia.
The Sole Luna Doc Film Festival was held in Palermo on July 7-13, 2019.
