ANTLER won the special mention award of The Unforeseen Festival

Atoosa Pour Hosseini’s ANTLER (2018) won the special mention award of The Unforeseen – International Experimental Film Festival in Belgrade, Serbia. The jury’s response on the Antler’s award:

“A film of subtle poetics and expressive aesthetics achieved through the hypnotizing intertwining of archive and authorial footage, “Antler” erases the boundaries between fiction and documentary, introducing the viewer to a mysterious and, to a certain degree, fairy-tale-ish world of oneiric atmosphere. Formally seductive, and challenging to decipher, this “ecological fantasy” (for the lack of a more precise definition) transforms a botanical garden into a laboratory of evocative images and sounds, in a process that could be identified as alchemy.”
