Utopia lets ‘The Obliv­ion’ in

Iran Daily - - Art & Culture -

Ira­nian short film ‘The Obliv­ion’, di­rected by Fate­meh Mo­ham­madi, has made it into the list of the flicks to be screen­ing at the Utopia Film Fes­ti­val held an­nu­ally in Greenbelt, Mary­land, lo­cated near Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

A pro­duc­tion of the Ira­nian Youth Cin­ema So­ci­ety, ‘The Obliv­ion’ nar­rates the chal­lenges peo­ple face in old age, Mehr News Agency wrote.

The short film man­aged to win an award at the 2018 Moon­dance In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val in the US.

The Utopia Film Fes­ti­val is an an­nual event that searches for and presents films that ex­plore utopian vi­sions in a mul­ti­tude of forms.

Be­ing non-profit, it seeks en­ter­tain­ing and en­gag­ing works which typ­ify the mis­sion: “Seek­ing a bet­ter world through film”.

The event ac­cepts works which cre­atively ex­plore the so­cial, po­lit­i­cal, cul­tural and en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues which chal­lenge hu­man­ity’s never end­ing quest — in all its vari­ables — for the per­fect ‘utopian’ ex­is­tence. 1
