‘Yeva’ wins Best Film at Armenia’s Rolan Fimlfest.
Art and Experience: Iranian feature ‘Yeva’ by Anahid Abad has won the Best Film award at the 14th Rolan – International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Armenia.
‘Yeva’ managed to snatch the Best Film award at the 14th Rolan – International Film Festival for Children and Youth, held on 6-10 November 2018 in Yerevan, Armenia.
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.
‘Yeva’ has recently received three nominations (best feature, best script and best director award) at the 21st Arpa International Film Festival (AIFF) in the United States. The festival will announce winners after it wraps up on November 21.
