'Women with Gunpowder Earrings' nominated for best film of Leipzig festival

Tehran, Oct 31, IRNA - Iranian documentary film “Women with Gunpowder Earrings' was nominated for the best film from the audience's point of view at the Leipzig Festival in Germany.

“Women with Gunpowder Earrings' directed by Reza Farahmand and produced by Morteza Shabani, in its continuing participation in various international festivals, was nominated for “Best Film from the Viewpoint of Audience: The Leipziger Ring Award” of the German Leipzig Festival.

Reza Farahmand, with his brave camera, which is very close to subjects, takes us to the extreme tensions of the front line and the suffering of the people and succeeds in capturing images and speeches that display ambiguity in the discourse of ISIL supporters.

The Leipziger Ring Award is the award for the best film from the audience's perspective, awarded to a prominent documentary on human rights, democracy or citizen participation.

The story of the film is about an Iraqi woman journalist who during the war met with ISIL's displaced women and children, who accompany them to the ISIL foreign and domestic families (Iraqi).
