Animated Documentary: Abuelas by Afarin Eghbal (2011)


I just found the below in my drafts. Started over a month ago, though I sincerely don’t remember what my point behind it was to be. So, I am not going to add anything to that and leave it as it is. Only because the film mentioned there deserves to be mentioned at all. Enjoy its trailer and pray for a chance to see it.

In a small apartment in Buenos Aires, an old woman eagerly awaits the birth of her grandchild. However, horrific circumstances mean that she will be forced to wait for over 30 years. 

This short animated documentary was screened as a part of British Showcase at LIAF in the beginning of September 2011. It was made by an Iranian-born director, Afarin Eghbal, who moved to the UK as a baby with her family after the 1979 revolution.
