Iran’s Qasemi hunts US Snake at ‘Lunch Time’

Iranian short film 'Lunch Time' won the best short student film award at the 2017 Snake Alley Festival of Film in the US.

The 15-minute film by Alireza Qasemi, which was featured in the sixth edition of the US festival, recalls the story of a high school girl who goes to a hospital to identify the body of her mother who passed away recently, IRNA reported on Wednesday.

'Lunch Time' was recently placed among the official selections for Court Metrage of the 70th Cannes Film Festival in France. It also won the Best Cinematography Award at Flamingo Film Festival.

Snake Alley Festival of Film was held from June 21 to 24, 2017 in Burlington, Iowa hosting 70 films from a number of countries. The festival is dedicated to showcasing the best short films from around the world. Films were screened at the beautifully restored Capitol Theater in the heart of downtown Burlington, Iowa. The theater boasts state of the art equipment and can comfortably seat more than 400 people.

The festival derives its name from Snake Alley, a street constructed in 1884 and designed to connect an upscale residential neighborhood to the business district of downtown Burlington. Named by Ripley's 'Believe It or Not' as "The Crookedest Street in the World", it remains the city's #1 tourist attraction drawing visitors from around the world.
