Iran’s ‘Owsia’ named finalist in Spain’s science festival

Iran’s ‘Owsia’ named finalist in Spain’s science festival

Iranian short documentary, ‘Owsia,’ by Alireza Dehqan was accepted as the finalist in the competition section of #LabMeCrazy! Science Film Festival in Spain, which is scheduled for September 17-20.

Directed by Alireza Dehghan, ‘Owsia’ is about Zarach Qanat in Yazd, the longest of its kind in the Middle East, which was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list last year. ‘Owsia’ brings focus to the dying out of the qanat, which is attributed to negligence and faulty life style, IRNA reported.

The Spanish festival is an initiative run by the Museo de Ciencias at the University of Navarra. It is a film festival that aims to raise awareness about science among young people by offering a refreshing, modern take on scientific knowledge.
