Iranian short flick ‘Exam’ has revealed a trailer.
Directed by Sonia Haddad, the short film narrates the story of a girl named Sadaf who has forebodings for the exam she is going to take.
But today, instead of going to school, she delivers a package of illegal drugs to a client and gets caught in a weird cycle of events.
‘Exam’ has already grabbed awards such as the award for Best Live Action Short Film at the Tirana International Film Festival in Albania, the international student jury award at the BRNO16 International Short Film Festival in the Czech Republic, and the AFI fest award which made the title qualified for the short film category of the 2021 Oscars.
the 15-minute film is “a simple story that has illustrated enough about the position of women and youngsters against authority and repression. For its everlasting effect and progressive change of emotion, for its surprising cycle of events, for its lead teenager actress and her weary fatigued distinguished face that carried the story until a poignant closure,” the jury of the Tirana International Film Festival wrote.
