Written and directed by Mana Pakseresht, the short flick narrates the story of a teenager who is alone at home on her birthday due to self-quarantine.
Though, her mother who is a nurse and is in the hospital has a surprise for the girl.
The only character of the flick is Yalda Ramzi.
Described as the 1st International Pandemic Self-Isolation Short Film Festival, the event aims to create motivation for the filmmakers who are in self-quarantine by offering financial and distribution awards to winners.
The festival team asked interested filmmakers to make up-to-five-minute films with any genre or topic.
The selected films will participate at an online competition. They will be presented on festival’s website and will vie for the prizes.
The winning films will be chosen for international distribution by interfilm Berlin Management that is a partner of the festival.
