Art and Experience: Iranian filmmaker Mohammad-Ali Talebi’s latest movie “The End of Dreams” has been nominated in the Best Youth Feature Film category at the 11th Asia Pacific Screen Awards.

The film will be contending for the award with four other films in the category, the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA) that is the producer of the film announced in a press release on Saturday.

The movie is about a boy who lives with his family in a village in northern Iran. After his father buys a horse, he falls in love with it. He makes a mistake along the way but keeps it to himself. This creates even more troubles for him as time goes by.

Iranian cinema has always been among the major competitors at the APSA every year.

“Breath” by Narges Abyar received a nomination in the Best Youth Feature Film category last year.

The 11th Asia Pacific Screen Awards will be presented in Brisbane on November 23 as the competition is currently open.

“Daughter” by Reza Mirkarimi was also nominated for the awards for best screenplay and best film.
