Serbian fest to feature Iranian ‘Coexist’

Iran’s ‘Coexist’ is to attend the Seize the Film uhvati filmfest in Serbia.

Iranian short title ‘Coexist’ has been slated to attend the Seize the Film uhvati film festival in Serbia.

Directed by Komeil Soheili, the 12-minute flick will be among the 41 titles in contention at the 8th edition of the Serbian event.

The film is about a blind captain living on Hormuz Island in Southern Iran.

As the tensions increases, he starts making some traditional bread using three unexpected elements from the island.

He fishes by his one of a kind ability to hear the sound of fish in the ocean.

Then, he collects the island’s natural salt and its eating soil to make the bread.

‘Coexist’ will soon attend the Terres Travel Festival-Films and Creativity in Spain too.

Soheili is a young prolific Iranian filmmaker and documentarian who has so far gained lots of international recognitions for his works such as ‘Baraka, the Cow’, ‘The Little Plant’, ‘So Far, So Close’ and ‘Branches and Brushes’.

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.

Teimour Qaderi’s ‘Gando’ will also take part at the Serbian event.
