London Kurdish fest hosting ‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’

Iranian ‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ is on screen at London Kurdish filmfest in UK.

Iranian short animation ‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ is on screen at the London Kurdish Film Festival (LKFF) in the UK.

Directed by Ziba arzhang, the 6-minute short film is being showcased at the 24th edition of the American fest, which will be held online.

‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ is about a city painted on a tile that will undergo intense explosion and bombardment. Due to the incident, the sun will break into many pieces and the city gets dark.

The people will build a new sun together.

In the production of the flick, Arzhang has taken benefit of Iranian art manifested in the form of beautiful tile works.

Tourists who have already visited the country are familiar with such magnificent art works that have mostly decorated Iranian mosques or religious places.

The short has already participated in some global events including the Sonoma International Film Festival in the US.

Launched in 2001, the LKFF aims to be “a powerful and influential form of artistic expression and one which carries great importance for Kurds” and “a tool for emancipation and self-expression”, according to the event’s official website.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s edition of the event is being held online since April 16 and it is to wrap up on April 27.
