Iranian short animation ‘Eaten’ has received an Honorable Mention at the 26th Golden Beggar International Film Festival in Slovakia.
Directed by Mohsen Rezapour, the short animation is about a mysterious unknown planet named ‘Eaten’, where a rabbit-like creature is eaten, but that’s not the end of the story.
A brief synopsis for the 7-minute animation reads, “A rabbit has been eaten by a wolf, meeting the other rabbit, inside the predator’s stomach, which had been eaten by the wolf earlier. Now the two go on living in the new environment and the story goes on”.
‘Eaten’ has so far gone on screen at a number of global events, including the 23rd Seoul International Cartoon and Animation Festival in South Korea, the 15th Dieciminuti Film Festival in Italy, the 2020 Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film in Germany, and the 14th Annual TAIS Animation Showcase in Canada.
The Golden Beggar festival focuses on the films that deal with present-day problems such as minority, blackmail or corruption.
The 2020 edition of the event was held on November 5-7.
