Iranian doc ‘Gando’ to compete at Nepalese fest

Iranian doc ‘Gando’ is to vie at the 2020 Kathmandu Int’l Mountain Film Festival in Nepal.

Iranian documentary ‘Gando’ has been selected to compete at the 18th edition of the Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival (kimff) in Nepal.

Directed by Teimour Qaderi, ‘Gando’ narrates the story of a little girl, named Hawa, who lives in a village in Iran’s Sistan and Balouchestan Province.

She has been attacked by a crocodile and lost her arm.

The little girl shown in the flick is one of the many kids in the province who have to travel long paths to fetch water from ponds where Gandos (a type of crocodile local to the 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 8-minute flick was screened at a number of global events, including the Picknic Film Festival in Spain and the EBS International Doc Festival in South Korea.

The best film award at the Humboldt International Film Festival in the US is among the honors gained by the short doc.

The kimff screens exciting films about the mountain people, sports, environment, cultures and societies from around the world.

The Nepalese festival celebrates the complexity and diversity of the mountain life.

The upcoming edition of the Nepalese festival will be held on December 10-14, 2020.
