Iranian animations bag triple Annecy awards

Two Iranian animations, ‘Son of the Sea’ and ‘Am I a Wolf?’, won awards at the 59th Annecy International Animated Film Festival and Market in France.

‘Son of the Sea,’ directed by Abbas Jalali-Yekta, also received the Prix de la Ville d'Annecy of the French festival.

Jalali-Yekta’s film tells the story of a man who lives in a house with his wife and the illusion of their son on the wall! This hallucination gradually creates complications in their lives, annecy.org reported.

Directed by Amir-Houshang Moein, ‘Am I a Wolf?’ is about children who perform the familiar story of the wolf and the yearlings in school as a puppet show. The nanny goat grieving its yearlings and the angry wolf in its solitude face each other.

The films were screened in the Perspectives Short Films in Competition. Amelia Chiew, Zosie Golding and Fahim Arif Motahar were the members of the jury for the category.

Twenty-three countries including Iran, Croatia, the US, Germany, Brazil, China, Peru and Greece competed in this section.

The total number of 3,069 animations, from 94 countries, were submitted to the secretariat of the festival, from which 200 films were screened in the official selection of the festival, which took place in the southeastern French town of Annecy from June 10 to 15.
