Iran’s ‘Breathing’, ‘Hanged’ to vie at Busan festival

Tehran, Feb 24, IRNA - Two short Iranian films were accepted for participation at 2019 Busan International Short ilm Festival (BISFF) in South Korea.

‘Breathing’, directed by Farshid Ayoubinejad, and Roqiyeh Tavakkoli’s ‘Hanged’ are the two selected Iranian shorts that will compete in the 36th edition of the Korean film event, ifilmtv.com reported.

A tagline for ‘Hanged’ reads, “Parvaneh is a forty-year-old girl who is always hungry.”

Ayoubinejad’s ‘Breathing’ is about workers of a stone factory who don’t have healthcare coverage and have to hide in a dark and small room every month when the insurance agent arrives. This time, though, as they lie low there and something unexpected happens.

The short flick has so far attended a number of international film events such as the Human Rights International Film Festival in Italy. The same festival awarded the film the Best Short Film title.

The BISFF was established in 1980 to create a film-making friendly environment to discover gifted film professionals.

The latest edition of the film event is slated for April 24-29.
