TEHRAN (IFILM) -- Iranian documentary ‘Three Meters and a Few Centimeters’ has been slated to participate in the Canberra Short Film Festival (CSFF) in Australia.
Mostafa Salehinejad’s short doc will compete at the 26th edition of the Australian event.
‘Three Meters and a Few Centimeters’ is about the COVID-19 issue in the Iran’s southwestern city of Ahvaz.
The coronavirus has not only caused many deaths but also created a crisis in burial traditions.
According to the obligations of Islam, when someone dies, the body must be washed by hand in order to move on to the hereafter cleansed.
Because of the COVID-19’s wild and deadly infection, few people are willing to touch the bodies of those killed by the virus, which creates a crisis in the city.
The Iranian doc took part in a number of global events, including the Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival in the U.S. and the Viva Film Festival in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The CSFF provides an opportunity for filmmakers to showcase their works for a wide range of audience.
The 2021 edition of the event is scheduled for November 10-25, 2021.
