Mehrdad Oskouei's flick follows a group of under 18-year-old girls taken into care for a variety of reasons ranging from drug dealing and trafficking to pick-pocketing and manslaughter. Gradually it becomes evident what brought them there. Bored with their incarcerated life, they are, nevertheless, scared about what might happen to them once outside. As the New Year approaches they all hope to celebrate it with their families, pravoljudski.org wrote.
The Pravo Ljudski Film Festival started as educational documentary film screenings for university students and developed, since 2006, into an international festival contributing to promoting creative cinema.
'Starless Dreams' won awards at the 34th Fajr Film festival and the 66th Berlin International film festival (Berlinale). Oskouei won the True Vision award at True/False film festival which is given to the best documentary filmmaker.
The Pravo Ljudski Film Festival arose from the commitment to record, disclose, explain and question, but also to finally provoke thinking and inform through independent cinema and arts.
The first festival, which took place in June, 2006 screened 17 films, and welcomed seven guest filmmakers. Obviously, it was more than enough to create an inner sparkle, an inspiration for devoted work and commitment to the promotion of independent cinema and the art of film across Bosnia-Herzegovina… Not only in Sarajevo, and not only inside the cinemas.
