“The Unseen” to vie at S. Korea’s DMZ film festival

Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian documentary “The Unseen” directed by Behzad Nalbandi will be screened at the 12th DMZ International Documentary Film Festival in South Korea.

“The Unseen” will vie at the Asian Competition section of the festival which is known as one of leading international documentary film festivals in Asia.

The 12th edition of DMZ International Documentary Film Festival will be held September 17-24 in Goyang in the north of South Korea.

“The Unseen” is about a time when Tehran hosts foreign dignitaries, the local authorities clean up Tehran’s urban image through an ‘urban beautification’ process which includes the rounding up of unsavory characters from the city streets; i.e. drug addicts and prostitutes. The men are released after a few days but the women are kept as wards of the state in perpetuity.

The animation began its international screening at the IDFA Festival. It was nominated for the best-animated film of the Asia-Pacific Festival and it was also nominated for Istanbul Film Festivals, which has been postponed due to coronavirus.

“The Unseen” has also appeared online at the Munich and Krakow festivals amid coronavirus outbreak.
