No Burqas Behind Bars Wins The 13th WATCHDOCS!

We are very proud to announce that Nima Sarvestani's film No Burqas Behind Bars took home the main award at the prestigeus WATCHDOCS International Film Festival. We thank the festival team, the judges and the audience for their great appreciation and commitment to our film.

The Judges Verdict: “A sincere and moving portrayal of a group of women that rebels against the inhuman rules which have imprisoned them. Using an accurate observational style, the film takes us into the inner and outer world of these women reveling them personal dramas and the paradox they face: finding safety in prison”.
