|“White Pigeon” takes flight in competition at French filmfest||
TEHRAN -- The Iranian animation “The White Pigeon by the Mirror” is competing at the 19th Nancy-Lorraine International Film Festival, which is currently underway in France.
Directed by Maryam Khalilzadeh, the seven-minute animation is based on a story of the same title by Ahmadreza Ahmadi.
It is about a little girl who, after waking up one morning, sees a white pigeon outside the window of her room.
She tries to catch the pigeon, but it flies away, leaving a white feather. The girl takes the feather and follows the pigeon wherever it goes. However, she only can find some of the pigeon’s colorful feathers. Disappointed, she returns home where she finally finds the pigeon.
The animation has been produced by Iran’s Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults.
It is competing in the Sélection Jeune Publique section of the festival, which ends today.
Formerly known as Aye Aye Film Festival, the Nancy-Lorraine International Film Festival has remained a crossroads of cultures and cinema.
