A short film ‘Retouch’ written and directed by film critic and director Kaveh Mazaheri, 36, has reached the lineup for 2017 Tribeca Film Festival to be held April 16-30 in New York.

The film revolves on Maryam’s husband who has an accident at home and, rather than saving him, she stops helping and watches him die.

The film won awards at the 35th Fajr Film Festival (January 30-February 9) and at the previous annual celebration of the Tehran-based House of Cinema, according to Mehr News Agency.

Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by America film producer Jane Rosenthal, 60, superstar Robert De Niro, 73, and real estate investor Craig Hatkoff, 62, reportedly in response to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the consequent loss of vitality in the Tribeca neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, although there are reports that its founding was underway prior to the events of 9/11.
