‘Oblivion Season’ wins top prize at Italian filmfest.
Art and Experience: Highly-acclaimed Iranian film ‘Oblivion Season’ by Abbas Rafei won the Best Film award at 13th Salento International Film Festival in Italy.
Abbas Rafei’s award-winning feature ‘Oblivion Season’ enjoyed its 73rd international screening at the 13th Salento International Film Festival (SIFF13) where it won the Best Film Award.
“I am glad that I was able to present a true and real image of today’s Iranian society to the world,” Abbas Rafei said.
The movie narrates the story of a struggling but strong-spirited young woman who, against all prejudices, tries to assert herself against other working women and also against the hostility and contempt of the family of her husband.
‘Oblivion Season’ has recently won the Best Film Award at the 16th Nickel Independent Film Festival, Canada, and the 7th International Film Festival of Independent Filmmakers in California, US.
The 13th Salento International Film Festival (SIFF13) was held on 2-10 September in Italy.
