TEHRAN (IFILM) -- The Calcutta International Cult Film Festival (CICFF) in India has awarded Iranian documentary ‘Woodgirls – A Duet for a Dream’.
Directed by Azadeh Bizargiti, the documentary won the monthly award of “Film on Women” at the CICFF.
‘Woodgirls – A Duet for a Dream’ is about the lives of Leila Avakh and Sediqeh Momennia who have chosen carpentry as a profession, which is considered extremely masculine in the traditional society of Iran.
The duo faces many difficulties and obstacles; however, they are determined to prove that it is not impossible to achieve your dreams.
Leila and Sediqeh are amongst the first female carpenters in Iran.
The CICFF is a monthly live screening film festival with an annual live screening mega award event in the City of Joy. The monthly live screenings take place at the end of each month.
