Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian documentary “Sunless Shadows” directed by Mehrdad Oskouei will compete at the Documentary Feature Film section of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA).
The 14 edition of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards will take place November 11, 2021.
“Sunless Shadows” is about an Iranian juvenile detention center in which adolescent girls serve sentences for the crime of murdering fathers, husbands or male family members. The all-female prison is also a shelter from an aggressively male-dominated society. Through frank conversations and playful interactions, the girls open up about the consequences of, and sometimes the reasons for, their action.
The documentary has already been screened at several international festivals and won a number of international awards.
