Iran's 'Return' back home with Jordan's Karama Feather Award

Iranian short 'Return', directed by Shahriar Pourseyedian, won the Karama Feather Award (the best short film award) at the 9th Karama Human Rights Film Festival in Amman, Jordan.

Pourseyedian's film is about a man named Rahim who returns to his homeland after 23 years in prison to meet his brother.

'Return' was nominated for best short fiction award while 'Ballsy: Story of a Revolution', by Mohsen Pourmohseni, was named for best animation award.

Earlier 'Return' won the special mention in the New Outlooks section of the 21st Religion Today Film Festival held from October 5-10 in Trento, Italy.

According to the event's website, Karama Human Rights Film Festival, which was established in 2010, seeks to "create a cross-cultural platform for artists, filmmakers and the wider general public to engage in issues relating to human rights, in particular to the dignity of human beings, their sense of worth, belonging and spirit of common welfare among their communities and the wider national spectrum".
