“Sunless Shadows” wins 2 awards at Kraków Film Festival

Tehran (ISNA) – The Kraków Film Festival praised Iranian documentary “Sunless Shadows” with the award of the student jury and the Silver Horn for the director of the film on social issues.

Iranian documentary “Sunless Shadows” directed by Mehrdad Oskouei participated in the 60th Krakow Film Festival held online from May 31– June 7, 2020.

“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 won awards such as the best director award at International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam and honorable mention at Big Sky film festival in the US.

“Sunless Shadows” currently competes at Doc Edge Film Festival.
