Iranian short ‘Slaughter’ to go on screen in the UK

Iranian short ‘Slaughter’ is to go on screen at the 2020 Sheffield Short filmfest in the UK.

Iranian short flick ‘Slaughter’ has been selected to go on screen at the 2020 edition of the Sheffield Short Film Festival (SSFF) in the UK.

Co-directed by Ako Zand-Karimi and Saman Hosseinpour, the flick narrates the story of a family that has to sell its only cow to live through a tough winter.

The family’s son, however, is not happy with the deal, so he lets the cow escape.

The film has so far attended a number of global events, including the 2018 Early Bird International Student Film Festival in Bulgaria, the 17th Third Eye Asian Film Festival in India, the 12th Kustendorf Film and Music Festival in Serbia, and the 12th International Glasgow Short Film Festival in Scotland.

It won the Jury Prize at the 8th Rural Short Film Competition (Mostremp 2019) in Spain as well as the best screenplay award at the 7th Parma Music Film Festival in Italy.

Run by Sheffield filmmakers, the SSFF brings together international short films to a diverse audience and celebrates the works of new and established filmmakers.

The 2020 edition of the event was previously scheduled for May, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, it was postponed to be held on October 30-November 1.
