The Int’l Rotary Short filmfest in Turkey nominates Iran’s ‘The Savior’.

The 2022 edition of the International Rotary Short Film Festival (ROFIFE) in Turkey has nominated Iranian short flick ‘The Savior’.

Directed by Soheila Pour-Mohammadi, the short film is shortlisted for an award at the Fiction section of the 14th run of the event.

‘The Savior’ tells the story of a little kid who is traumatized following the death of her mother.

After the tragic incident, the child cannot stand the death of other living creatures.

Her father is a fisherman. When the man brings home the fish, he notices that his daughter takes them back to the sea. She says she needs to save them as they are dying.
