Iran's film sees no 'Limit' at Peekskill festival

Iran's film sees no 'Limit' at Peekskill festival

Iranian short 'Limit' won two top prizes at the Peekskill Film Festival (PFF) in the United States.

Directed by Javad Daraei, the short film scooped the Best Student and Best Cinematography awards at the festival's third edition.

Daraei adopts a spiritual outlook in his films, employing novel imageries to challenge the cliché. 'Limit' addresses the challenges and problems in the daily lives of the physically impaired people who are scarred by presuppositions and judgements in the society.

'Limit' is an eight-minute narrative of the life a man in a quiet neighborhood who asks for help from people whom he is seeing, until someone suddenly enters his home. Daraei's second film deals with protecting the rights of people with disability.

Founded in 2015, PFF screens a mix of features, shorts, documentaries and animation.

The flick has earlier won awards at the Seventh St. Cloud Film Fest, the Second Miami FearFest in the US and MoonDance International Festival as well as the award for best foreign short film in Hollywood Hills Awards, the Best Short Fiction award at the 10th Southampton Film Week 2017 in a port city on England's south coast.
