TEHRAN (IFILM) -- Iran’s short animated film ‘Tangle’ has received the Narrative Grand Prize at U.S. film festival.
"The film is simply exquisite,” Jo Ann Skousen, founding director of Anthem festival, said at the awards ceremony.
Directed by Maliheh Gholamzadeh, ‘Tangle’ is a war story narrating the separation of people from their homeland due to war and the subsequent crisis.
The seven-minute animation was produced in 2019.
‘Tangle’ has attended the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) in the U.S. and is vying at the 10th edition of "We Like 'Em Short" Film Festival currently underway in the state of Oregon.
The film also grabbed the Best Animation award at the "Short to the Point" Film Festival in Romania.
