Iranian short ‘The Stain’ Wins in UK

Iran’s short ‘The Stain’ grabs Small Axe filmfest award in the UK.

Directed by Shouresh Vakili, Iranian short title ‘The Stain’ has grabbed the Best Short Film award at the 2020 edition of the Small Axe film festival in the UK.

The 12-minute flick is about an ex-soldier who works in a movie theater.

He tries to remove a blood stain that appears on screen every time a war film is played.

But the more he fights with the stain, the bigger it gets until it drips onto the floor and leaves a puddle.

‘The Stain’ has been screened at some global events, including the "One Shot" International Short Film Festival in Armenia and "The Wild West" FreedomFest 2019 in the US.

The Small Axe festival welcomes the films that address social, political and ideological issues.

Any film is accepted to the festival as long as it is less than 30 minutes.

This edition of the festival was held online on July 17-19, 2020.
