Co-directed by Mehdi Azari and Amin Ektesabi, ‘Epilogue’ is a production of the Iranian Youth Cinema Society of Maragheh.
“In an apocalyptic world, humans are forced to give the savings of human knowledge to half-human-half-animal creatures in exchange for little food. Then, in a rigorous bureaucratic and industrial process, these creatures turn human knowledge into canned food for certain creatures,” reads as a plot summery published in media.
‘Epilogue’ has already competed at a number of film festivals, including the 36th Tehran International Short Film Festival, the 26th L'Etrange Festival in France, the 16th Kazan Muslim Film Festival in Russia as well as the 20th Izmir International Short Film Festival in Turkey.
