Teimour Qaderi’s 8-minute flick will be in contention at the 3rd edition of the US event.
‘Gando’ narrates the story of a little girl named Hawa who lives in a village in Iran’s Sistan and Balouchestan Province and 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.
The film will soon attend a range of international events, including the Zlin Film Festival in the Czech Republic, the Picknic Film Festival in Spain and the Seize the Film uhvati film festival in Serbia.
The Eugene Environmental Film Festival is a platform to showcase films that have the prophecy of introducing critical issues our planet faces.
The latest edition of the event is slated for October 2-4, 2020.
