Directed by Mahsa Samani and produced by Iran’s Documentary and Experimental Film Center (DEFC), the 9-minute flick tells the story of a man and his daughter, who are accustomed to living in harmony and peace with nature, but some disruptions change their lovely little life.
The animation has previously participated in several international film festivals, including the 11th Karama Human Rights Film Festival in Jordan and the 28th Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film in Germany.
‘Haboob’ grabbed the award for best short animation at the Jordanian event.
