Also written and produced by Rostami, the story of ‘Echo’ is about understanding and perception of wildlife and environmental abuse and its consequences on human race.
On his motives to make ‘Echo’, Rostami previously said, “I always ask myself would humans still hurt animals and cause damage to the environment if they were treated in the same way. I empathize with environment because I think all the living creatures have feelings like we have. They can feel happiness, sadness, anger, and other feelings that they might share with us. That's why I wanted to make a movie about empathy for the environment”.
The SEFF is a travelling ecological film festival which aims to raise public ecological awareness by screening educational films.
This year’s edition of the event is slated to open on June 21 in Zagreb and to go on in some other cities of Croatia.
