The synopsis of the film reads, “Something seems to be going great for the village. The sun is up and bright but suddenly something happens that casts darkness everywhere.”
‘Sky Sun, Tile Sun’ is a symbolic six-minute animation without dialogue. The animation has 12 characters, all of whom are considered to be the main characters because they work together to rebuild their world, ifilmtv.com reported.
The animation is based on the tiled design of the Moavenolmolk Tekyeh monument in Kermanshah Province, in western Iran. And parts of the public space of this building have been used in the film. This building is from the works of the Qajar era, and the remarkable and exceptional advantage of this building is in its tiling. According to Kermanshah cultural heritage experts, embossed and semi-embossed tiles, with very beautiful designs and natural colors used in this building are unique in the world.
The film has already participated in some global events including the Sonoma International Film Festival in the US.
Launched in 2001, the LKFF aims to be “a powerful and influential form of artistic expression and one which carries great importance for Kurds” and “a tool for emancipation and self-expression,” according to the event’s official website.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s edition of the event is being held online since April 16 and it is to wrap up on April 27.
