TEHRAN – The Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA) will screen “Bald Pigeon Fancier” on its portal on Monday.

Directed by Sadeq Javadi in 2011, the acclaimed animated film is based on a story of the same title written by Iranian writer Samad Behrangi in 1966.
