Directed by Farshid Ayyoubinejad, the short film ‘Breathing’ has been selected to vie at the 41st Argentina UNCIPAR Film Festival.
Ayyoubinejad’s short narrates the story of some stone factory workers who don't have health care and have to hide in a small dark room every month when the insurance agent arrives. This time, though, something unexpected happens.
The short has previously participated in various international festivals including 2019 Busan International Short Film Festival (BISFF) in South Korea, 2018 Lifft India | Filmotsav-World Cine Fest and 21st edition of Festival Internacional de Cortometrajes de Vila-real in Spain.
The festival aims to promote the genre of short film and introduce the achievements of the new talents. Besides screening the films, the fest holds workshops, debates and exhibitions for children.
The 41st edition of the festival is slated for August 17-19, 2019.
