Iranian-Indian short film ‘The Other’ has grabbed an award at the International Film and Music Festival Kustendorf in Serbia.
The 13th edition of the Serbian event has honored the film, co-directed by Ako Zand-Karimi and Saman Hosseinpour, with its Best Cinematography award. Hamed Baqaeean has been the recipient of the award.
The short film is about a traditional man who following his wife's death suspects her thinking his wife had an extra marital affair with another man. His condition becomes critical when he suspects her daughter belongs to the other man.
Mohammad Potki, Mohammad Bidaq-Beigi, Asieh Moradizar, and Shiva Soufi-Mahmoudi are among the cast members of the flick.
The directing team for ‘The Other’ has already made another award-winning flick which is ‘Slaughter’.
