Forgotten Heroes

Short animation film sketch – neither documentary nor fiction

Iran’s three million drug addicts are a taboo that journalists are not allowed to report on. The film consists of audio fragments of interviews with children of opium-addicted parents in Tehran. One wants to be a professional footballer so that he can look after his family, while another wants to be a policeman so that he can tackle drug crime. The visual characters are animated, the audio interviews are found footage from the Internet.
