Directed by Javad Daraei, the film grabbed best film award at the 2020 edition of the American event.
The 7-minute short film is the story of a man in a quiet neighborhood who asks people for help until someone enters his home.
Daraei’s film, shot in the Iranian province of Alborz, is a creative depiction of the struggles disabled people face on a daily basis out of fear of being misjudged by society.
