Iranian short film ‘Slaughter’ has been set to attend the Lecce Film Festival in Italy.
Co-directed by Ako Zand-Karimi and Saman Hosseinpour, the social flick will be in competition with 58 international works at the 14th edition of the Italian film event.
‘Slaughter’ narrates the story of a small village family whose life depends on their one and only cow that they own. They are in fact very fond of the animal which however, must be sold to help the family live through a rough winter.
The family son saddened by this decision will let the cow go to prevent its doomed destiny.
The short took its international premiere at the 2018 Early Bird International Student Film Festival in Bulgaria.
The latest edition of the Lecce Film Festival is slated for December 28, 2019- January 04, 2020.
