Female Cineastes Awarded in Russia

Director Narges Abyar and actress Gelareh Abbasi received prizes for the movie 'Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear' at the International Festival of National and Ethnic Films 'Akbuzat' in Russia.
Participating in the first edition of the festival, Abyar's first feature film won the best film of the audience and the best leading actress awards, MNA reported.
Speaking on the audiences' reactions after watching the film, Abbasi said "the movie was screened twice and for both showings the cinema hall was full. A wide cross-section of the people welcomed the film which went beyond our expectations."
The movie tells the story of Leila, a pregnant woman, who deals with big and small problems in her life.
The competition section of the festival comprised of full-length feature films, short feature films, and documentaries. Films from Russia, Germany, Cuba, Iraq, Iran and other countries took part in the festival held from November 27-29 in the Russian city of Ufa. The documentary 'Mashti Esmail' by Mehdi Zamanpour from Iran was also shown at the festival, which aims at promoting spiritual and cultural values of peoples around the world, popularizing work of filmmakers in national and ethnic films, making a positive contribution to the development of cinematic art, and searching for new talent among young filmmakers.
