Iranian short animated piece ‘Malakout’ directed by Farnoosh Abedi, and ‘Greyish’ by Eqbal Shirzaei, which will enjoy its UK premiere, are two of the 20 handpicked “fantastic, eclectic animations” to represent the Iranian cinema at the 12th edition of CPIFF in London, ifilmtv.com reported.
‘Malakout’, which recently received the honorary diploma at the Silk Road International Film Festival in Dublin, Ireland, is about a piano player who tries to bring his wife back to life but the deal awakens the devil inside him.
‘Greyish’ is a minimal story about a woolen old man as a metaphor of our life.
Established in 2009, CPIFF screens only the very best of the independent films it receives, according to the event’s organizers.
The 12th edition of the event will be held on March 4 to 27, 2020 in London, UK.
