TEHRAN – Iranian director Kianush Abedi’s animated movie “Alphabet” has won the award for best short animation at the Festival Sayulita in Mexico, the organizers announced.

The story in “Alphabet” is set in a town located in nowhere land. It has been years since the people of this town have forgotten the alphabet of life. They have no sight, hearing or speech left… but the words are impatiently waiting to be sung again.

The festival, which opened on January 31, awarded winners on February 4.

The award for best film was presented to “Shine” by Anthony Nardolillo from the U.S. The film tells the story of two brothers, who once were New York City’s renowned Salsa dancers.
