Arab cinema rules at Osian's fest

In the Asian and Arab Competition, Turkish film "Inside" by Zeki Demirkubuz was adjudged the best by a jury comprising Marco Mueller (artistic director of Rome Film Festival) and filmmakers Muzaffar Ali, Ali Mostafa (Iran), Magdi Ahmed Ali (Egypt) and James V Hart (the US).

In "Inside", protagonist Muharrem pressgangs his old friends into inviting him to dinner, where old grievances come tumbling out into an ugly showdown. As the night becomes charged with tears, anger and regret; the outrage spills onto the dark streets, and into sleazy hotel rooms.

Faouzi Bensaidi won the Best Director for the Moroccan film "Death For Sale". It was a double triumph for Iranian film "Modest Reception" as it won awards for the Best Actress (Taraneh Alidousti) and Best Actor (Mani Haghighi).

The Special Jury Prize in the section went to "Postcards from the Zoo" (Indonesia) while Japanese film "Milocrorze: A Love Story" got a special mention. (MORE)
