(Persia Digest) – The short animation “Junk girl”, by Mohammad Zare and Shalale Kheiri, has been Iran’s best loved animation over the past two years. It has obtained its most recent award from the Lebanese Independent Film Festival (LIFE).
The animation is a free take of Tim Burton’s “The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy”, the prominent American poet and filmmaker. The poem is a black humor narrating the story of spontaneous transformers.
“Junk girl” is the story of a girl made of junk. She is always bullied in the city for her strange, unconventional appearance and is rejected from everywhere.
The animation has also won the Best Experimental Animation Award from the US International Motion Picture Festival, the Solidandoo Festival third prize from Italy, and Best Stage Design from Atlas & Aeris among others.
