MINA WALKING WINS BEST FILM AWARD

MINA WALKING has won the main jury prize for Best Film at the 28th Der Neue Heimatfilm Festival in Freistadt, Austria. The Award comes with a 2222 euro prize. 

Here is the statement from the international Jury:

We would like to give the main award for the best feature film to MINA WALKING by Yosef Baraki. An intense and engaging portrait of a young Afghan girl, making her way through the difficult circumstances of everyday Kabul. The young girl doesn`t react, she is the mover and the shaker of the situation. She is powerful: she isn`t a victim at any cost. The film brings us to Kabul, Afghanistan, observes with a documentary attitude and amazes us through an extraordinarily talented actress.
