Experiencing Interruptions?

Farah - Fountain of youth

"Without You It Rains Everyday"...Farah laments as she hypnotizes us once again. Effortlessly alternating between English & Farsi, her vivid brand of poetry is one of a kind. Directed by Rome's Robotina & produced by Johnny Jewel, "Fountain of Youth" is the latest single to hold us over while we anxiously await her full length. The animated short film pays tribute to her grandfather Ali Nemat’s legendary Khatam work. As a prominent figure in the sphere of Persian art, he specialized in intricately inlaid work by hand. Nemat was the first to break the mold of geometric patterns. This film pulls inspiration from his work as well as Farah's Persian heritage. Our heroine walks the streets of her dreams alone. In a world where ancient shapes morph into modern forms...echoes from her past become the road of her future. Her search for everlasting life continues in "Fountain Of Youth".

Director Biography - Robotina

Robotina is an animation directing duo formed by Sara Taigher and Yassmin Yaghmai. The two designers met in 2015 to work on the animated short film Black produced by So What pictures. Since then they have been working hand in hand on a multitude of animation and motion graphics projects including short films and commercials.
Their Robotina studio was born precisely with the desire to experiment visual styles and techniques different from the usual.
The opportunity arrives in 2019 with the music video Farah - the only ones, collaborating with the LA based music label Italians do it better. Since then, in a few months, also thanks to the collaboration with the animator Sabrina De Marco, they design and animate The Sea Rises, a short film created to be screened during the Climate Vulnerable Forum Event and they design the animated visuals for the US and Europe Live tour of the American band Desire.
