More Than Two Hours (Bishtar az do saat)
Bader - ages 18+ - Ajyal Youth Film Festival 2013
An ailing young woman desperately seeks urgent medical attention, but the law stands in her way. Set during a single evening and featuring no score, ‘More Than Two Hours’ is a claustrophobic, gripping odyssey – and a matter-of-fact look at an extremely sensitive issue. Presented at the Cannes Film Festival and at numerous other festivals, it has won several awards worldwide.
