“Whole to Part” crowned best at Italian filmfest 

TEHRAN – Iranian director Vahid Hosseininami’s short film “Whole to Part” was named as best film at the 19th Lucania Film Festival in Italy, the organizers announced on Sunday.

The short tells the story of a gigantic iron statue of a despot which is removed from the town square. The statue is melted and the steel enters people’s life in form of different objects. Despotism enters people’s life in smaller scale and continues its existence.

The Theory of Sunset” by Roman Sokolov from Russia won the award for best short animation and the award for best short documentary went to “Carmen” by Natalia Preston from Germany.

The festival was held in Lucania from August 1 to 5.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.
