TEHRAN -- Iran’s animated short film ‘It’s a Gray, Gray World!’ has been set to participate in the Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF), an Oscar-qualifying festival, in the U.S.
The Iranian Youth Cinema Society reported that ‘It’s a Gray, Gray World!’ will be screened at the 47th edition of the American event, iFilm reported.
Directed by Sayyed Mohsen Pourmohseni Shakib, the film is about a colorful young man who lives in a completely gray world.
“He is forced to change his color in order to live in that society, but his real identity scares people as it has been accidentally revealed by a playful boy,” the film’s synopsis reads.
The Cleveland International Film Festival is “a leader in helping the world discover the power of the film arts to educate, entertain, and celebrate an inclusive human experience”, the website of the event reads.
The 47th edition of the CIFF will take place on March 22-April 1.
