Produced, written, and directed by Farzaneh Omidvarnia, the short animation is about a group of refugees in search of a better life in another place.
They pay someone to smuggle them across the border in a fridge truck.
However, the freezing temperature of the truck turns their hopes for a better future into a fierce struggle for survival.
‘Song Sparrow’ uses puppet animation to tell a tense tale based on an actual event that happened in Austria in 2015.
The PIFF welcomes international films from around the world and provides filmmakers with a chance to showcase their works.
