Duration: 4 mins 30s

The GraveSleepers is an animated short film, exploring themes of transience, mortality and the human condition. Inspired by factual events that led a group of

itinerants to inhabit rows of empty graves in a cemetery on the outskirts of Tehran, گور خواب ها / The GraveSleepers, is a literal title of what aims to offer a lyrical  interpretation, questioning the fragile and fleeting nature of our existence against a backdrop of dust.
