Visions du Reel Festival’s special mention given to Iranian doc

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian documentary “The Silhouettes” directed by Afsaneh Salari received the jury’s special mention of the Visions du Réel International Film Festival in Switzerland.

Switzerland’s Visions du Réel prize ceremony was held online due to COVID-19 crisis and the jury’s special mention in the international competition section of the festival went to “The Silhouettes”.

“The Silhouettes” is the story of an Afghan family living in Iran, who has left Afghanistan 40 years to come and live in Iran. The film follows the son of the family who wants to repatriate to Afghanistan – to live and work there – but is confronted with the opposition of his family. It’s a film about belonging, identity, separation and connecting to your roots through the past in order to reconcile with the future.

The 51st edition of Visions du Réel International Film Festival was held from April 24 to May 2, 2020 in Switzerland.
