Iran to participate in Brazil’s FRICINE with three titles

Tehran, Oct 16, IRNA - Three Iranian titles entered the competition program of the 13th International Socio Environmental Film Festival of Nova Friburgo, FRICINE, in Brazil.

Two animations by Iranian filmmaker Ali Zare Qanatnowi, ‘Empty View’ and ‘Essence’, as well as a short film, ‘Tanafos’, directed by Farshid Ayoubnejad, will represent the Iranian cinema at the event, ifilmtv.ir wrote.

‘Empty View’ narrates the story of a mother waiting for her son to come back home from war. ‘Essence’ was inspired by the music of German composer Richard Strauss, with a focus on depicting human beings as an endless galaxy in the universe.

The International Socio Environmental Film Festival of Nova Friburgo, also known as FRICINE SOCIOAMBIENTAL, was founded in 2006, with an aim to “promote films, capable of stimulating the public’s perception of environmental questions, and stressing the urgency of preserving nature and the ecological, cultural and touristic values of the Atlantic Rain Forest in the region of Nova Friburgo”.

The festival’s 13th edition will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from October 30 to November 4.
