US fest screening Iranian short animation ‘The Rotation’

Iranian short animation ‘The Rotation’ is on screen at the 2021 Providence Children’s filmfest in the US.

Iranian short animation ‘The Rotation’ has gone on screen at the 12th edition of the Providence Children’s Film Festival (PCFF) in the US.

Directed and produced by Hazhir Asadi, the 7-minute animation shows two tribes that engage in a tug-of-war to possess the sun and moon.

None of the sides can defeat the other and their conflict wreaks havoc on the Earth’s climate.

An eventual ceasefire brings temporary stability and harmony until unexpected events renew the cycle of conflict and destruction.

It is a film about the futility of war and the folly of human efforts to dominate nature.

‘The Rotation’ has so far gone on screen at a number of global events, including the Suncine International Festival of Environmental Cinema in Spain, the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival in the US, the MikroFAF International festival of DIY and independent short films in Serbia, the VGIK International Student Festival in Russia, and the Arpa International Film Festival in the US, where it won the Best Animated Film award.

Presenting the best independent works of children’s cinema, the PCFF connects children and families from various communities.

Due to the situation caused by coronavirus, the 2021 edition of the PCFF has been slated online for February 12-21.
