Iranian handicap's short film in German festival

A short movie by physically challenged artist Towfiq Fattahi was admitted into and will be screened at Germany's upcoming Golden Tree International Documentary Film Festival, said the director general of West Azerbaijan Province's Welfare Organization, northwest Iran.

The movie Disability does not limit … was made by a physically challenged artist from Oshnavieh, [West Azerbaijan],' said Saeed Farivar.

Farivar said that the movie had already topped a festival in Shiraz, Fars provincial capital, south of Iran.

The four-minute movie concerns a young tailor from Oshnavieh who has disabilities in both hands and legs; but does his everyday life chores independently and is a goalkeeper of a local futsal team as well.

The Golden Tree International Documentary Film Festival will be held in September, 2018.
