Directed by Jafar Najafi, the 30-minute documentary narrates the story of a boy who herds a flock of sheep.
The boy’s biggest dream is to become a Hollywood star.
The boy, Asho, is under the influence of the Hollywood films that his cousin brought him.
‘Asho’ has participated at several festivals and received many awards, including a special mention at the 62nd International Leipzig Festival in Germany and the Best Film Award of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
The FFDL is an annual 9-day event, “dedicated exclusively to short films, documentaries, and full length features about the life, history, and traditions of the mountains”, according to the official website of the event.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s edition of the fest was held online on August 21-30.
