The 8th Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) 2014 UNESCO Award winning film ‘Memories on Stone’ was recently screened in the main auditorium at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris.

The movie is the latest work of Iraqi Kurd director Amin-Korki. Its cinematographer is Salem Salavati from Iran, reports IRNA.

The screening took place during the annual conference of States Parties to UNESCO’s 2015 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, coinciding with its 10th anniversary.

The film, a joint production of Iran, Iraqi Kurdistan and Germany, is about two childhood friends, Hussein and Alan, who decide to produce a film about the Al-Anfal Kurdish genocide after the fall of the former dictatorial regime in Iraq.
