Iran's short film ‘Cradle of Silence’ to vie in Brazil

Iran’s short film, ‘Cradle of Silence,’ is slated to compete at the 2020 FestCine Itaúna international film festival in Brazil which will be held online from August 17 to 22.

Directed by Mostafa Mehraban, the 13-minute film tells the story of Rasoul, who has to deliver a cradle to his martyred friend’s widow. With Rasoul returning from the southern war zone to the northern part of the country, his wife La’ya plans to go back to the warzone with him, reported.

Mehraban’s short film has participated in several prestigious events across the globe, including the 2019 Montauk Film Festival in New York and the fifth Reading Film Festival in the US, as well as the fifth BangkokThai International Film Festival in Thailand.

The Iranian film recently won the Award of Merit for the best short film at the 11th edition of IndieFEST Film Awards in La Jolla, California.

The FestCine Itaúna aims to uphold cinematographic culture by holding free exhibitions and workshops for the public.

It encourages young filmmakers to explore new ways of communicating.
