Amsterdam to Stage Iranian Film

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian puppet show Cow is to be staged at the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) of the capital city of Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.

Written and directed by Hamed Zahmatkesh and Mehdi Farshid-Sepehr, the award-winning puppet show will be performed for Dutch schoolchildren for six days and for the public for one day.

Produced by Iran's Organization for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA), Cow recounts the story of two men who come across a cow on their way to the land of 'nowhere', a press tv report said.

The script of the play will be translated into Dutch so that the children can enjoy the show in their mother tongue.

Cow has participated in numerous national and international events including the fifth High Fest International Performing Arts Festival in Yerevan, Armenia.

Hamed Zahmatkesh received the Best Stage Designer award for Cow from the 14th Isfahan Theater Festival for Children and Young Adults.
