A 14 year old film-maker

23 Jul, '03

Hana grew up around film sets. Photo: Makhmalbaf Film HouseA young girl, Iranian girl, has made a movie that is now up for one of the top awards in the Venice Film Festival.

It is a documentary about her sister, Samira Makhmalbaf, making her latest film in Afghanistan, and has been chosen for the festival’s critics’ week.

This makes me very proud of Hana – although i have never met her and may never do, and very pissed off at the same time that a 14 year old girl from one of the most restrictive societies around not only makes a movie, but have that put up for one of the top awards at an important international film festival too!

Good on ya Hana, you’re a better man than I am!
