Filem Iran Tentang Tukar Jantina Menang Anugerah di US

Poster FACING MIRRORS ala ...Dalam Botol

PF lambat tahu bahawa filem Iran yang membawa isu pertukaran jantina (perempuan ke lelaki) iaitu Facing Mirrors menang Anugerah Circle Award di Washinton Film Festival 2012 (festival filem nyamuk hah?  -  sekurang-kurangnya dapat perhatian). Kalau 'circle' ni mungkin anugerah dari pengkritik filem di festival berkenaan, bukan dari juri yang dilantik. Berita kemenangan ini telah disiarkan di BBC News pada 27 April 2012 ( sumber ).

Sinopsis :
Iranian femme director Negar Azarbeyjani's first feature, "Facing Mirrors," presents two women poles apart in class and beliefs -- one a naive traditionalist forced by circumstances to support her family, the other a rich pre-op transsexual running away from home. When a long taxi ride entangles their destinies, they slowly forge an unlikely friendship rooted in newfound solidarity, rather than moralistic notions of tolerance, which allows each to help the other accomplish complementary goals. This fascinating dual character study could lure gay and straight auds alike.
