A Moon For My Father wins FIPRESCI International Critics Award

We are delighted to announce that A Moon For My Father has been awarded the FIPRESCI International Critics Award at the 22nd Flying Broom Film Festival in Ankara. The jury of Kristian Aalen, Meena Karnik and Sarah Skoric stated:

‘Our winning film is both intimate and bold. We meet two artists who sculpt their work around death. One feels that she is carrying death in her body, the other is mourning the death of a parent. But together they sculpt life in a miraculous way. The film is brave and never pitiful, though the battle at times is daring. It is a visual, poetic diary, put into a larger socio-politic context, making it a multilayered documentary. “FIPRESCI International Critics Award 2019 ” goes to A Moon for My Father by Mania Akbari and Douglas White.’
