Two Short Films Win in Kolkata Festival

The 5th Indian International Deaf Film Festival (IIDFF) granted its trophy for  the international section to short Iranian film ‘Limit’.
The award ceremony was held in the eastern zonal cultural center in Kolkata city on December 11-12.
‘Limit’ which is directed by the 25-year-old filmmaker, Javad Daraei, is an 8-minute narrative about a physically-challenged boy who cannot speak properly, IRNA reported. ‘Melody’ directed by the deaf couple Behrouz Qasemi and Fatemeh Lotfi also won the second award in the international section.
The 7-minute movie is about a young  deaf girl who tries hard to learn to speak so that the family of the boy (also deaf) who she loves consents to their marriage.
IIDFF focuses on films reflecting real life experience scripted, created, performed, produced or directed by the deaf and those with hearing difficulties. The jury constitutes film professionals who know sign language.
