Iranian animation ‘King Lear, Tragedy of Light’ awarded in Lithuania

Iranian animation, ‘King Lear, Tragedy of Light,’ garnered the Best Iranian Film Award at the 2021 Iconic Images Film Festival in Lithuania.

Directed by Omid Movahedi, the animation is a free adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy ‘King Lear,’ ifilmtv.com reported.

‘King Lear’ tells the story of a king who passes on his wealth and power to two of his daughters who flatter their father.

The third daughter, who is not flattering her father, gets nothing. In the end, the king reconciles with his third daughter but their story culminates in a tragedy.

The Lithuanian festival hosts short films, animations, and documentaries from around the world and provides an opportunity for filmmakers to showcase their works.
