Victim” is a short narrative film that runs for 180 seconds and challenges the tradition of animal sacrifice through its powerful storytelling, without any word.

Bahman Radan, a prominent environmental and animal rights filmmaker, has been following a vegan lifestyle for over a decade. His work frequently explores these themes, and he entered the filmmaking industry to raise awareness about animal rights and peace.

Among his other notable works are “That Also Breathes,” “Smile,” “Return,” and the documentary “Smoking Kills But Not You.

“Victim” has previously been selected for the 2024 Vegan ÇİFTLİK Film Festival in Turkey, the 2024 Madeira Curtas Film Festival in Portugal, the 13th Riurau Film Festival in Spain, and was also recognized as one of the top 100 films at the Three Acts of Goodness Micro Film Festival 2024 in California.

The film stars Ramazan Öğüt and Ramazan Uzun. Sara Moradi, an activist and researcher in veganism, wrote the screenplay, while Zahra Radanfar, an environmental and animal rights activist, edited and colorized the film. Bahman Radan directed and shot the film, and Siavash Baygi, one of Iran’s most experienced musicians, composed the film’s emotional soundtrack and sound design.

Bahman Radan, the film’s director, shares his thoughts:

“In many cultures and religions, animals are sacrificed on holy days. This film aims to challenge this deep-rooted tradition and raise the question: Is it truly right to sacrifice an innocent being for the sake of cleansing sins or fulfilling wishes?”

Radan further adds:

“We hope this film encourages audiences to contemplate this issue and seek peaceful, humane alternatives to achieve tranquility and well-being, rather than repeating outdated and harmful traditions.”

“Victim’s” selection for this prestigious festival is a remarkable opportunity for the film to be seen by an international audience and amplify its message of peace and empathy on a global scale.

FilmOneFest will be held at Atlantic Highlands Marina on Saturday, July 20, 2024, from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM. For more information, please visit the festival’s website.
