TEHRAN (IFILM) -- Iranian animation ‘The Sprayer’ has made its way to the DC Shorts Film Festival in the U.S.
Made by award-winning director Farnoush Abedi, the animated piece is representing Iran at the competition section of the 19th edition of the event currently underway.
The Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA) is the producer of ‘The Sprayer’ on man’s hostile attitude towards the Earth.
The story of the movie is set in an unknown land, where a group of soldiers is on a mission to destroy all types of growing plants.
One of the soldiers realizes that the plants are not only safe but also useful. Therefore, despite his mission, he tries to preserve one of the plants.
“Due to recent changes in the environment, the hostility of human beings with the Earth, global warming, the gradual erosion of the Earth, and a desperate struggle to save the future, it seems the greatest threat in the course of history is happening for man,” Abedi said in an interview with local media.
“The animation is a symbolic look at this great threat, which can turn into a global issue,” he added.
The DC Shorts Film Festival is an annual film festival held in Washington, D.C.
DC Shorts provides opportunities for filmmakers of every skill level to explore and learn the craft of filmmaking while entertaining and expanding the horizons of audience members.
The 19th edition of the festival is currently underway from September 8-18, 2022.
