MY SWEET PEPPER LAND wins top awards in Festival Duhok, Kurdistan
Best Kurdish Film, Best Kurdish Script and Best Kurdish Actress Awards go to My Sweet Pepper Land at Festival Duhok 2013
"The jury has decided to award a special mention
in the category “Best Kurdish Feature Film”. This promising debut tells
an important story about topical issues concerning the clash between
traditional and modern values."
"The award for Best Kurdish Script goes to a
film which we think will attract a broad audience with its surprisingly
good storytelling in a cinematic way. The screenplay allowed the
filmmakers to shoot an entertaining film with interesting characters,
important topics, action, pace and a touch of irony.
According to the
jury, the two scriptwriters created the most well developed script of
all the fiction films in the competition. They skillfully transformed
the story into a complete film on paper.
We are happy to give the Best Kurdish Script award to Hiner Saleem & Antoine Lacomblez for MY SWEET PEPPER LAND."
