TEHRAN – “Pink House”, an animated movie produced at the Documentary and Experimental Film Center (DEFC), criticizes social media overuse.

Directed by Nazila Rajaieh, the 2D animation is about a girl who loses herself under the shadow of social media addiction.

“Today, I see how much the use of the Internet has become epidemic,” Rajaieh said in a press release published by the DEFC on Tuesday.

“I’ve met people who have become mentally ill due to problematic social media use, and consequently, they’ve felt a need to receive treatment in psychiatric hospitals. As a result, the idea of making the animation came into my mind,” she added.

Rajaieh has spent a year making the short movie she has co-written with her sister, Farnaz.
