Directed by Mahan Khomamipour, the short flick was in competition at the 24th edition of the Latvian film event.
‘Simulation of Mr. Yellow’ is a documentary on love and how it makes a man go unaware of whomever that might happen around him. To him all exists is the hope to see the beloved.
The filmmaker takes us to the war-stricken Syria where a man always wears yellow colored garments hoping that his beloved will recognize him among the demolished walls of the city. But, she never shows up and the man must practice his ritual every day.
The 2020 edition of the Latvian festival offers original and challenging short films.
The viewers and filmmakers have had the chance to participate in open discussions during the festival.
The event held closing ceremony on February 16, 2020.
