Art and Experience: Iranian director Shirin Barqnavard’s documentary “Poets of Life” won the special jury award at the Green Film Festival, which was held in Seoul from May 18 to 24.

The film is about Shirin Parsi, an Iranian graduate of French literature from the University of Paris who returns home to work on her rice farm in northern Iran, where many farmers are forced to sell their lands at very low prices to developers.

“Plastic China” by Wang Jiu-Liang from China was picked as best film while “Angry Inuk” by Alethea Arnaquq-Baril from Canada won the PUCCA Audience’s Choice Award.
