Soleen Yusef wins the Prize for the Best Director in Bratislava

We are thrilled to announce a further award for our feature film HOUSE WITHOUT ROOF. Director and Scriptwriter Soleen Yusef received the prize for the Best Director at 19th Bratislava International Film Festival. The decision was explained with the following words:

"Soleen Yusef is a woman, who had the courage to explore with a sincere sensitivity the men in a very patriarchal society, who also chose to  film in a dangerous part of the world, in a nation that has yet to be created, Kurdistan, and who displayed a masterful quality of directing considering that this was her film school graduation debut."

Congratulations to Soleen Yusef, we are happy about this decision.
