Directed by Teimour Qaderi, the 8-minute flick will be in contention at the 18th edition of the Serbian event which is an event about disability.
‘Gando’ narrates the story of a little girl named Hawa who’s missing a limb.
Hawa who lives in a village in Iran’s Sistan and Balouchestan Province has been attacked by a crocodile and lost her arm.
The little girl shown in the flick is one of many kids in that province who have to travel long paths to fetch water from ponds where Gandos (type of crocodile local to south of Iran) reside.
The little kids are attacked by the wild reptiles and as a result they are either eaten alive or mutilated.
The best film award at the Humboldt International Film Festival in the US is among the honors gained by the short title.
Launched in 2003, the Seize the Film uhvati film festival showcases films that are related to the subject of disability.
The event not only accepts and screens films, but also holds filmmaking workshops, exhibitions and panel discussions.
This year’s edition of the fest is slated for September 23-29, 2020.
