Directed by Nasser Zamiri, the short film is about a couple who are facing a serious challenge.
“Ebrahim's recurring insomnia has caused tension between him and his wife Marziyeh,” reads a tagline of the flick.
The cast of the film includes Mehrdad Bakhshi, Neda Asadi, and Ali Yazarlou.
Zamiri’s work has been presented at several film festivals, including the Huesca International Film Festival in Spain, the Busan International Short Film Festival in South Korea, and the MedFilm Festival in Italy.
Established in 1999, the DCIFF has been hosting filmmakers from around the world and helped them voice their ideas.
