Life After Oil awards Iranian ‘Gando’

The 2021 Life After Oil Int’l Film Festival in Italy awards Iranian documentary ‘Gando’.

Iranian documentary ‘Gando’ has grabbed the Best Documentary Award at the 2021 Life After Oil International Film Festival in Italy.

Directed by Teimour Qaderi, ‘Gando’ narrates the story of a little girl named Hawa, who lives in a village in Iran’s Sistan and Balouchestan Province.

She has been attacked by a crocodile and lost her arm.

The little girl shown in the flick is one of many kids in the province who have to travel long paths to fetch water from ponds where Gandos (a type of crocodile local to the south of Iran) reside.

The little kids are attacked by the wild reptiles and, as a result, they are either eaten alive or mutilated.

The 8-minute flick has already been screened at a number of global events, including the Picknic Film Festival in Spain and the EBS International Doc Festival in South Korea.

Life After Oil International Film Festival aims to raise public awareness about the risks of exploitation and using natural resources such as fossil fuels.

The event was held on September 22-26, 2021.
