The 1st edition of the Alwar International Film Festival in India has scheduled to screen Iranian short ‘Box Man’.
Written and directed by Manouchehr Teymourzadeh, ‘Box Man’ narrates the story of a middle-aged reporter who is making a film about a teenager who lives inside a box and refuses to come out despite his mother’s pleas.
Meanwhile, the reporter gets closer to the world of the teenager and becomes enraptured by his life inside a box.
The film has taken part at the 9th London Lift-Off Film Festival in the UK, and was nominated in three categories at the Action on Film MegaFest Festival in the US and in two categories at the 4th Hollywood Dreams International Film Festival in the US.
The city of Alwar, known as the tiger gate of Rajasthan in Western India, will hold its first international film festival in January. The festival is dedicated to independent films and has live screenings.
The 1st edition of the Alwar International Film Festival is slated for January 4–5, 2020.
