Film buffs attending a festival in the picturesque Italian city of Padova are in for a treat with a lineup of five Iranian short films.
The Iranian short films competing in the 11th River Film Festival in the northern Italian city include ‘Vision’ by Soheil Amirsharifi, ‘Honey Moon’ by Puya Nabi, ‘Wirelefant’ by Saman Ghanaemi, and ‘Mother’ and ‘Reporter’, both directed by Mohammadreza Kheradmandan.
The synopsis of ‘Vision’ reads, “An installer of closed-circuit televisions forces his girlfriend to do something that she hates.”
‘Reporter’, by Kheradmandan, tells the story of a little boy who reports the last minutes of a soccer match, but the end is very different for him.
The festival is currently underway and will come to end on June 30.
