‘Borderless’ will take part in the festival’s competition section.
Directed by Amir Hossein Asgari, the film is about a boy who boards a beached ship every day to catch fish and has turned it into a place for relaxation, but the presence of a stranger disturbs that calm.
The other films which were shortlisted for the festival include ‘Yadoo’, ‘Mehran’ and ‘African Violet’.
