The 2nd edition of Ensenada International Film Festival (FICE) in Argentina has awarded Iranian short film ‘The Summer of the Swans’.
The Iranian Youth Cinema Society reported on Tuesday that ‘The Summer of the Swans’, directed by Maryam Samadi, won the 2nd prize at the FICE.
The film is about Rasoul, a handicapped boy who can’t go fishing on the lake along with other children of his village.
Based on a story he has been told by his grandmother, Rasoul believes that his wishes will come true when he sees swans.
The FICE “focuses on cinematographic works that address a critical, poetic or aesthetic reflection around water. In this sense, water may appear as a central or tangential element in the development of narratives,” an online submission platform reads.
The 2nd edition of the festival took place on December 12-19.
