The 39th edition of the Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) in South Africa has set to screen Iranian short ‘Duel’.
A tagline for Mohammad-Reza Kheradmandan's flick says, "A Duel at the Crossroads."
The 100-second film depicts child labor issue in a fantasy approach.
The Iranian short has previously grabbed the Best Short Film prize from the London Iranian Film Festival in 2017.
Another Iranian short ‘Bitter Sea’ by Fateme Ahmadi has also been accepted into the competition program of the South African festival.
The DIFF is an annual film festival that takes place in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa.
It is one of the oldest and largest film festival in Southern Africa and presents more than 200 screenings celebrating the best in South African, African and international cinema.
The festival also offers filmmaker workshops, industry seminars, discussion forums, and outreach activities that include screenings in township areas where cinemas are non-existent.
The 39th Durban International Film Festival is slated for July 19-29, 2018, in South Africa.
