Directed and produced by Hazhir Asadi, the 7-minute animation shows two tribes that engage in a tug-of-war to possess the sun and moon.
Neither side can defeat the other. Their conflict wreaks havoc on the earth’s climate.
An eventual ceasefire brings temporary stability and harmony until unexpected events renew the cycle of conflict and destruction.
It is a film about the futility of war and the folly of human efforts to dominate nature.
The short animation has so far gone on screen at a number of global events, including the Animasyros Festival in Greece and the Girona Film Festival in Spain.
The Adana Film Festival aims to screen international films by outstanding filmmakers. It hosts a wide range of works and provides a rich experience for attendees.
The 2021 edition of the event will take place on September 13-19.
