TEHRAN (IFILM) -- Iranian flick ‘Simulation of Mr. Yellow’ has been set to take part in the shorTS International Film Festival in Italy.
Directed by Mahan Khomamipour, the short flick will be among the competing titles at the 22nd edition of the Italian event.
‘Simulation of Mr. Yellow’ is a documentary on love and how it makes a man go unaware of whomever that might happen around him. To him all exists is the hope to see the beloved.
The filmmaker takes us to the war-stricken Syria where a man always wears yellow colored garments hoping that his beloved will recognize him among the demolished walls of the city. But, she never shows up and the man must practice his ritual every day.
The film has been shown in a number of global events, including the Riga International Short filmfest in Latvia, the Euroshorts Young Filmmakers International film festival in Poland, and the ArchFilmLund in Sweden.
The 2021 edition of the shorTS International Film Festival will be held in Trieste on July 1-10.
