Iranian documentary ‘A157’ is scheduled to be screened at "Movies that Matter" Film Festival in the Netherlands.
Directed by Behrouz Nouranipour, the movie is to be screened alongside 70 other documentary and feature films at the festival.
‘A157’ is a shocking documentary about the horrors of war and terrorism in Syria, particularly inflicted on women and children.
The documentary has participated in many international festivals and won many awards, including the Special Jury Award at the ninth edition of Iran’s 2015 Cinema Verite in Tehran and an honorary diploma at the full-length documentary section of International Shahid Avini Award.
Movies that Matter believes that the film camera is a powerful weapon against social indifference. Film has an unprecedented capacity to open eyes. What cannot be accomplished by spoken and written language is sometimes achieved by motion picture, the official website of the festival wrote.
