Iranian short animation ‘Echo’ wins at Cone Int'l Film Festival

Barzan Rostami's ‘Echo’ wins at the 4th Southern Cone Int'l Film Festival in Mexico.

‘Echo’ has garnered the Best Animation Short Film award at the 4th Southern Cone International Film Festival (FICCSUR) in Mexico.

Directed, written and produced by Barzan 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”.

‘Echo’ already went on screen at the International festival of animated film "Constantine's gold Coin" in Serbia.

The Southern Cone International Film Festival aims to host films from different cultures with various languages. The common language of the festival is the film.

This year edition of the fest was held on May 21-24, 2020.
