Iran’s “Congenital” wins special mention in Zlin Film Festival

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian short film “Congenital” made its international debut in 61st Zlin Film Festival and received the Special Mention.

Directed by Saman Hosseinpour and Ako Zandkarimi, known as SamKo brothers, “Congenital” was screened in the festival taking place in the Czech Republic.

The festival started 1961 and is considered a pioneer event in children’s film industry.

Congenital is a daring proposal of defiance of social expectations. It treats its thematic concerns with a notable visual sensitivity and reference to the fine-art traditions that are native to the millennia-old cultures of the Middle East, the jury said in a statement on “Congenital”.

“Exsanguination” and “The Other” are the other two films made by SamKo brothers that have attended many international festivals, winning several awards.
