Sarah Tabibzadeh’s 16-minute animated piece is about some people who are living with their personality layers, and they take them to “Layeromat” just like their clothes.
A young man who works in a “Layeromat” accidentally loses one of his layers.
Despite his long search, he couldn’t find it, but through an inner revolution during his searching, he reaches a new understanding of his being.
The short animation has taken part at the 10th ANIMAGE Int’l Animation Festival of Pernambuco in Brazil, the 15th Athens ANIMFEST int’l animation festival in Greece, the 15th Beloit Int’l Film Festival (BIFF) in the US and the 36th Tehran Int’l Short Film Festival in Iran where it won the Special Jury Award.
