Made by Iranian director Saeed Nejati and produced by Nejat Film as well as a Turkish production company, the short fiction is co-written by Nejati and Fatemeh Ashari.
The social film is about the relation between a father and his teenage girl.
The young filmmaker Nejati has made 14 short films before ‘Dabur’ and has managed to bag a number of awards at several national and international festivals.
His ‘Dabur’ took part in two competition sections of the 36th Tehran International Short Film Festival in Iran.
The 2021 edition of the DIFF has defined ‘Better Film, Better Audience and Better Society’ as its theme.
The festival’s website states the “DIFF is a bold expression of resistance against the decadence, vulgarity and cheap commercialism that pervades the mainstream Bangladesh film industry”.
The 2021 edition of the event will be held on January 16-24.
