Iranian film ‘Entr’acte’ directed by Mohammad Reza Kheradmandan is scheduled to hit the screen at the 5th Sharjah International Children Film Festival in the UAE.
The film will be screened at the Emirati festival held from October 8 to October 13, 2017 in Al Jawaher Reception and Convention Center in Sharjah.
Kheradmandan’s short animation ‘Entr'acte’ is a narrative inspired by an Israeli sniper’s message posted on Instagram saying that he slaughtered 13 Palestinian children in a day during the 2014 Israel assault on the Gaza Strip.
Entr’acte is a French word meaning ‘between the acts.’ The animation itself is a narrative happening in an interval between two musical pieces.
Sharjah International Children’s Film Festival is the first children film festival in the country and one of the most important ones in the region. The festival is dedicated to enhance the media literacy of children and young people, foster children’s creativity and showcase the very best in filmmaking for, by and about children and young people.
The festival plays an essential role in bringing international films and new media content for youth and children in the region. It exposes them to world cultures and promotes peace, tolerance and global understanding of how people from different cultures, religions and backgrounds live together in this world.
