A short film from Iran titled 'It Hits upon the Roof' won the special award at Switzerland's International Short Film Festival of Geneva, CourToujours.
The film, directed by Teymour Ghaderi, competed with representatives from Russia, France, Tajikistan, Belgium, Portugal, Egypt, Mexico, and Switzerland and managed to scoop the jury’s special award and a cash prize of 1,500 francs, MNA reported.
Produced by the Art Forum of Kurdistan province, Qaderi’s narrative short movie depicts the life of a young boy who tries not to let his mother wake up by gathering the raindrops dripping from the leaking ceiling into his hands.
The movie has already been screened in several international film festivals so far such as 2014 Lucania Film Festival in Italy, Lahore Short Film Festival 2013 Celebrating Iranian Heritage, and the third MICE Film Festival in Valencia, Spain.
Qaderi’s latest film 'Pomegranate Is the Fruit of Paradise' has also represented Iranian cinema in several international film events.
