Iranian short ‘The Kites’ to vie in Ireland

Ireland’s Galway Film Fleadh is to host Iranian short ‘The Kites’.

Iranian short title ‘The Kites’ has been selected to compete at the 32nd Galway Film Fleadh in Ireland.

Directed by Seyyed-Payam Hosseini, the short title tells the story of a boy who falls in love with a girl who lives on the other side of the border.

He tries to talk to the girl over her lost kite.

The short title has previously participated at the 70th Berlinale in Germany.

According to the Berlinale’s jury, 'The Kites' “tells us about borders, how they can be dizzying, terrifying and arbitrary. And because it’s a poetic tale that shows us that language can go beyond words and that empathy can be felt from afar.”

The Galway Film Fleadh is a weeklong international festival that aims to bring together films and filmmakers from around the world.

The festival welcomes films from all generations with diverse cultural backgrounds.

The 2020 edition of the event will be held on July 7-12.
