Starless Dreams directed by Mehrdad Oskouei has won two much respected awards at the 19th Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. USA:
*The Reva and David Logan Grand Jury Award*
The Jury, Rachel Boynton, Margaret Brown, and Ricki Stern stated, “We are presenting the Grand Jury Award to a film that took us into a world we are not normally privileged to see. Through this deceptively simple look inside a juvenile correctional facility for girls under the age of 18, we were given a window into modern Iranian society. Beautifully crafted with tenderness and enormous respect for the people in it, this film left us with a bracing emotional punch.”
*The Full Frame Inspiration Award*
Sarah Masters, Michael Palmieri, and Malika Zouhali-Worrall participated on the Jury. This award is presented to the film that best exemplifies the value and relevance of world religions and spirituality.
