Art and Experience: Iranian short ‘A Few Knots Away’, directed by Mansour Forouzesh, will be screened at the 62nd Ireland’s Cork Film Festival.
‘A few Knots Away’ narrates the story of a man named Hashem who has left his home island for years. When his father passes away, he returns to retrieve his body as he does not want to leave behind any belongings on the island which is disputed by the surrounding countries. Eventually his sister, Atieh, gets into an argument with him, but no one can stop Hashem.
