TEHRAN.(Iranart) –Two Iranian animation films ‘The Crab,’ directed by Shiva Sadeq-Asadi, and ‘Am I a Wolf?’ directed by Amir-Houshang Moein, will vie at the competition section of the 2020 Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan.
‘The Crab’ is about a shy boy who wants to be a member of the school theater group, but the only role he is offered is the role of a crab.
‘Am I a Wolf?’ depicts a number of students who are performing a play called ‘The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats.’ The child who plays the wolf knows he will be defeated and feels lonely and irritated. He takes his role too seriously. There is a bit of chaos. In the end, the presence of other children and his friends next to him take him out of this gloomy atmosphere.
In the competition section of the 18th edition of the festival, 59 works from different countries were selected. These 59 works are the representatives of the 2,339 entries in total that will vie at four competition programs, ISNA reported.
