Lisbon festival to screen two animations from Iran

March 9, 2019

TEHRAN -- Two Iranian animations will be competing in the Monstra Lisbon Animated Film Festival, which will be held in the Portuguese capital from March 20 to 31.

Mojtaba Musavi’s acclaimed movie “Mr. Deer” will be competing in the short film category, while “Starvation” by Zahra Rostampur will be screened in the student category, the organizers announced.

The story of the short movie “Mr. Deer” is set in a modern but ruined subway in an unknown time. People in this society have animal faces, they have forgotten humanity and ethics, and they do not avoid sins. Meanwhile, someone with a deer face is trying to reform the society.

“Starvation” tells the story of a hungry wolf who gets stuck in stereotypes about being the big bad wolf of the story. She has to flee when everybody accuses her of violence and murder. She faces the danger of getting killed.
