‘Slight Pain’ to present Iran at Poppy Jasper fest

‘Slight Pain’, a short film by Iranian director Pouya Nabi, has entered the official selection of the 2022 annual Poppy Jasper International Film Festival (PJIFF) in the US.

Produced by Alireza Alavian, ‘Slight Pain’ will make its seventh international premiere at the 2022 edition of the PJIFF, reported.

The short film is the story of two young girls who team up together in a murder plan to kill one of the girl’s strict stepdad.

The 25-minute-long flick stars Gilda Vishki and Marjan Ettefaqian as the two only actors of the film.

‘Slight Pain’ is Nabi’s fourth film production following ‘Silent’, ‘Honeymoon’ and ‘Sleepwalkers’, which all were warmly received in international film festivals.

‘Slight Pain’ is an adaptation of ‘The Housekeeper and the Professor’ by Japanese writer Yoko Ogawa.

The Poppy Jasper International Film Festival aims to “promote inclusion, diversity and women empowerment and educate people of all ages about filmmaking.”

The upcoming all-virtual edition of the PJIFF is slated for April 6-13, 2022 in San Francisco.
