Iranian short animation ‘Echo’ wins at Cone festival in Mexico

Iranian film, ‘Echo,’ by Barzan Rostami, received the Best Animation Short Film award at the 4th Southern Cone International Film Festival, which is also known as FICCSUR in Mexico.

‘Echo’ is about understanding and perception of wildlife and environmental abuse and its consequences on the human race, reported.

On his motives in making ‘Echo,’ Rostami had previously said, “I always ask myself, would humans still hurt animals and cause damage to the environment if they were treated in the same way. I empathize with the environment because I think all living creatures have feelings like we have. They can feel happiness, sadness, anger, and other feelings that they might share with us. That’s why I wanted to make a film about empathy for the environment.”

‘Echo’ has been screened at the international animated film festival ‘Constantine’s Gold Coin’ in Serbia.

The Mexican festival aims to host films from different cultures with various languages. The common language of the festival is the film.
