NY Museum Screens Oskouei’s ‘Starless Dreams’

Globally acclaimed Iranian documentary ‘Starless Dreams’ directed by Mehrdad Oskouei was screened for 10 days at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, January 20-29.
A haunting portrait of stolen childhood, the movie plunges the viewers into the lives of seven young teenage girls sharing temporary quarters at a rehabilitation and correction center on the outskirts of Tehran.
The museum also showed ‘It’s Always Late for Freedom’ (2008) and ‘The Last Days of Winter’ (2012), the first two installments of Oskouei’s film trilogy exploring the lives of incarcerated youth, Mehr News Agency reported.
Premiered at 2016 Berlin International Film Festival, ‘Starless Dreams’ won the Amnesty International Film Prize.
Since then, the 76-minute documentary has attended international festivals and won several awards and titles including True Vision Award at the True/False Film Festival in the US and Grieson Award for the Best Documentary at the 60th London Film Festival, both in 2016.
The museum advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media by presenting exhibitions, education programs, significant moving-image works, and interpretive programs, and collecting and preserving moving-image related artifacts.
Each year it screens some 400 titles in a stimulating mix of the classic and the contemporary. With outstanding new films from the international festival circuit, the museum programs are recognized for their quality as well as scope.
