The 13th edition of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) has set to screen ‘Copper Notes of a Dream’ by Iranian documentarian.
Made by Reza Farahmand and produced by Morteza Shabani, the documentary tells the story of Mallouk, a ten year old boy who collects the copper wire along with his friends.
They gather the wire from homes which were demolished during war and sell the collection in order to make a living.
Their passion for the pursuit of a childhood dream, however, lightens the warmth of hope in their hearts, enabling them to find happiness among the ruins.
Established in 2007 and headquartered in Brisbane, APSA is an international cultural program driven by Brisbane City Council through Brisbane Marketing and endorsed by UNESCO and FIAPF – International Federation of Film Producers Associations.
The 13th APSA will be held on November 21. According to the event’s official website the nominees will be announced in mid-October.
Iranian titles ‘Bomb, a Love Story’, ‘Tale of the Sea’, as well as ‘Ava’ won three awards at the 12th APSA and Iranian actor Navid Mohammadzadeh received a special mention for his role in ‘No Date, No Signature’ at the 11th APSA.
