Iran Daily - - Arts & Culture -

Ira­nian short film ‘Malak­out’, by Farnoosh Abedi, is slated to at­tend the 13th AN­I­MA­TOR Film Fes­ti­val in Poz­nań, Poland, slated for Oc­to­ber 3-9.

The eight-minute an­i­ma­tion, which is in the hor­ror genre, is about a pi­ano player who loses one of his hands in an ac­ci­dent and, con­se­quently, his abil­ity to play the pi­ano.

Due to the loss, he un­der­goes a hand trans­plan­ta­tion surgery, but the trans­planted hand is that of a dead crim­i­nal, which turns the pi­anist into a vil­lain and mur­derer, ifilmtv. com re­ported.

‘Malak­out’ has al­ready at­tended a num­ber of film events, such as the Guadala­jara In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val in Mex­ico, the Brook­lyn In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val in the US, Cap­i­tal City Film Fes­ti­val in the US, and the Galac­tic Imag­i­nar­ium Film Fes­ti­val in Spain.

The an­i­ma­tion has pre­vi­ously won sev­eral awards in­clud­ing the Spe­cial Men­tion Short award at the Silk Road In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val in Ire­land and the Best An­i­ma­tion award at the Black Coun­try Hor­ror Shorts Film Fes­ti­val in the UK.

Launched in 2008, the AN­I­MA­TOR Film Fes­ti­val is the big­gest fes­ti­val of an­i­ma­tions in Poland.
