Iranian short film ‘Slow Death’ is slated to be screened at the Early Bird International Student Film Festival in Bulgaria.
Directed by Amin Sahraee, the short film will represent Iran at the 15th edition of the event.
The short film is a thriller 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.
Launched in 2005, the Early Bird International Student Film Festival is the biggest Bulgarian forum dedicated to support the creation of student short films.
The festival is fully devoted to help young filmmakers to reach their audience.
The 15th edition of the film festival is slated for November 1-5, 2019.
