‘Am I a Wolf?’ short animation is slated to compete at the World Festival of Animated Film Varna in Bulgaria.
Amir-Houshang Moeen, the 8-minute animated piece will represent Iran at the short film competition section of the event.
A brief synopsis of the short reads, ‘The students are performing a theater called 'The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats'. Everybody has a role. They are totally getting carried away by their roles in a way that the borders between reality and theatrical performance in now hardly realized.'
Based on the fantasy book by Afsaneh Shabannejad, the animation is a recreation of the classic fable of ‘The Wolf and the Lamb’,
Meanwhile, the child acting as the wolf in the story is scripted to be defeated. That makes him feel lonely and annoyed. As he takes his role too seriously, a bit of chaos startles the group. In the end, the presence of other children and his friends next to him take him out of this atmosphere.
The 15th edition of the event is underway from September 11-15, 2019.
