Green

Iran, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Animation)

Director: Seyyed Ramin Sheydaei

Green is a beautiful folkloric animation. It uses a paint on glass technique to portray a battle of universal proporlions. The battle, represented through the interplay of primary colours, eventually reaches a very natural resolution. Although the subject is huge, and reinforced by a dramatic soundtrack, there are some lovely light moments.
