Iran filmmaker Nima Eghlima has won an award at the 2018 edition of All Lights International Film Festival in India.
The Iranian first time director has been awarded the Best Debut Director for his movie ‘Amir’ at the Indian film event.
Born in 1982, Eghlima is an Iranian director. Besides his award-winning film ‘Amir’, he has been working on his new project ‘North’.
'Amir' is a film about contemporary Iran; about a generation whose private lives are determined more by the rules of society than by their own will.
A brief synopsis of the film reads, 'Amir goes to pick his friend Ali from the airport, where he finds out that Ali's ex-wife, Ghazal has taken her son Ardalan with her illegally and most probably will emigrate soon. Despite all his personal problems, Amir takes Ali to his office to help him find his ex-wife and son.'
The film has already attended several international film festivals including the 2018 Rabat Auteur International Film Festival in Morocco.
All Lights International Film Festival aims at providing a platform for global film industry to portray excellence in filmmaking.
The latest edition of the film festival was held December 1-4, 2018.
