‘Eaten’ wins award at Black Movie fest

The Black Movie Int’l filmfest honors Iranian animation ‘Eaten’.

The Black Movie International Film Festival in Switzerland has honored Iranian short animation ‘Eaten’.

Mohsen Rezapour’s 7-minute short film has been granted Children’s award (Prix des Enfants) of the swiss event’s 21st edition. 

The film is about a rabbit which has been eaten by a wolf. When finally in the predator’s stomach, it meets another rabbit which had been eaten by the wolf some earlier time. Now the two go on living in this new environment and the story proceeds from this point on.

Rezapour, the director of the flick, has said to the media that although his animation is a fantasy production, it is not intended for the kids. Due to the fact that the things that happen on the show are a bit harsh, targeting the adults.

The film has already been showcased at a number of global events, including the Dieciminuti Film Festival in Italy, the TAIS Animation Showcase in Canada and the Fluxus Animation Film Festival in the Netherlands.

A special mention at the Dieciminuti Film Festival in Italy, the Distinction award of the Athens Animfest Int’l Animation Fest in Greece and an honorable mention at the Golden Beggar Int’l filmfest in Slovakia are only some of the global prizes the film has bagged.

The black Movie Int’l Film Festival is an independent film event which celebrated its 21st edition on January 22-31, 2021 in Geneva.
