‘Yeva’ goes to Germany’s FilmFestival Cottbus
Art and Experience: The feature movie ‘Yeva’, written and directed by Iranian-Armenian Anahid Abad, has been accepted into the Spectrum section of 28th FilmFestival Cottbus in Germany.
The 28th edition of FilmFestival Cottbus in Germany will host the screening of Iranian feature ‘Yeva’ in its Spectrum section.
Written and directed by Iranian-Armenian Anahid Abad, ‘Yeva’ is the story of a young woman who is forced to flee Yerevan with her daughter Nareh. She would have to stand trial there because she allegedly killed her husband. Uncle Ruben and the remote village in Nagorno-Karabakh are her last chance to go into hiding. But the villagers recognize her from the days of war when she had cared for the wounded as a doctor at the front.
The film has recently received the Audience Choice Award at the 12th annual Pomegranate Film Festival (POM) in Canada.
The 28th edition of FilmFestival Cottbus is scheduled for 15-20 November in Cottbus, Germany.
