Short films “Whole to Part” directed by Vahid Hosseini-Nami and “The Postman” by Vahid Keshavarz have made it to the official selection of Italy’s Lucania Film Festival.

The LFF is an independent film festival established in 1999 in the Basilicata region. This year’s event is slated for August 1-5.

Selected for the fiction section, Whole to Part will be vying with 13 participating films from Russia, Romania, Portugal, France and China among others, reported.

The 12-minute film tells the story of an iron statue of a dictator. After it is brought down, the statue is melted and used for making smaller objects. The fiction symbolically suggests despotism continues in the objects entering the ordinary people’s lives, after the ruler’s metamorphosis.

The Postman is in the documentary section where it will compete with six other films from the Czech Republic, Spain and Italy.

 It is about an immigrant Iranian poet who lives in London; he works as a postman and sometimes writes poetry in the Farsi language.
