February 3, 2018

TEHRAN – Iranian filmmaker Mehrdad Oskui’s acclaimed documentary “Starless Dreams” has won one of the two awards in the They’re Innocent section at the Budapest International Documentary Festival.

“Communion” by Anna Zamecka from Poland was another winner in the category, the organizers announced last week.

“Starless Dreams” follows a group of under-18-year-old girls taken into care for a variety of reasons ranging from drug dealing and trafficking to pick-pocketing and manslaughter. As the New Year approaches they all hope to celebrate it with their families.

Documentaries from different countries competed in different categories of the festival running from January 23 to 28.
