Iran’s short ‘Slow Death' has been set to take part at the 15th edition of the Early Bird International Film Festival in Bulgaria.
Written and directed by Amin Sahraee and formerly known as ‘Mirror’, the short film is about a segment of the life of a girl in old Tehran.
“On a dark night, a young girl’s mother and brother are at home. Before going to bed, Talaat, the young girl, tells a frightening tale. Her brother is too scared to get water from the kitchen. So Talaat goes to get the water. But when she returns to the room, her mother and brother have disappeared. Suddenly, a woman and a man unknown to her enter the room. Who are they? And then Talaat finds out the truth,” a synopsis for the film reads.
It was awarded at the Eurasia International Monthly Film Festival in Russia and the Tehran International Short Film Festival in Iran.
The Early Bird International Student Film Festival is the biggest Bulgarian forum dedicated to support the creation of student short films.
The 15th edition of the event will take place on November 1-5, 2019.
