Iran short ‘Funfair’ is picked for screening at Figari Film Fest in Italy.

Iranian acclaimed short film ‘Funfair’ has been picked for screening at the Figari Film Fest in Italy. 

Directed by Kaveh Mazaheri, the flick is scheduled to be among the 11 short works to compete at the tenth edition of the Italian film event.

The 15-minute flick narrates the story of a young married couple and their 5-year-old kid. Majid, the father of the family, is a financially struggling man. He comes up with a ploy in order to better the life of his wife, Sara.

The fact that he will be able to improve the situation or not and Sara will be patient enough or not is a matter of wondering.
