Iran Documentary Wins in Spain

Iranian documentary ‘I Dance with God’, directed by Houshang Mirzaee, received the Special Audience Prize at the MiradasDoc International Documentary Film Festival in Tenerife, the Canary Islands, a territory of Spain.
It competed with 65 films in the competition section of the 10th edition of the festival, Mehr News Agency reported.
The 40-minute documentary has attended several international events and won the best documentary award at the 9th Jahorina Film Festival in Bosnia and Herzegovina in August.
The flick depicts the life of Ali Badri, an old blind man in a remote mountain village in Paveh, Kermanshah Province, in western Iran, who despite his physical disability is a tailor. He has also managed to buy a beautiful garden and planted fruit trees in it. The man has a lively spirit and is full of desire for life.
Mirzaee, 44, tells us a story full of poetry, rhythm, color, passion and above all tenderness although it is not easy to do so in a documentary, and especially in such a short footage.
The event was held from October 31 to November 7.
