Iran’s ‘The Stain’ awarded at Italian Solidando festival

Iranian short film ‘The Stain’, directed by Shohreh Vakili, won the Best Social Shorts Film award of the 4th edition of Solidando Film Festival in Italy.

The film is about an ex-soldier working in a movie theater, who battles a blood-red stain that appears on screen every time a war film plays. The more he fights the stain, the bigger it gets until it drips onto the floor and leaves a puddle. Unable to remove the stain, the man must face his unresolved trauma about his life in the military.

Another Iranian short film, ‘Flying Fishes’ by Mohammad Tourivarian, also received the festival’s Special Mention, reported.

Tourivarian’s film is about a teacher who is new to a village. He notices that the only girl in his class does not talk and has cigarette burns on her skin.

Solidando Film Festival is an Italian non-profit and nongovernmental organization established in 2004 and based in Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia Island.

The festival has a commitment to help low-income countries, improving educational growth and reduce social disadvantage through specific projects, according to the event organizers.
