In its eleventh international presence, “No Choice” will be screened at the Human Rights section of the Belgian event, ISNA reported.
The cast of the film includes Fatemeh Motamed-Arya, Negar Javaheriyan, Parsa Pirouzfar, Maryam Boubani and Parivash Nazariyeh.
‘No Choice’ tells the story of three women and a determined lawyer who takes on the case of a homeless girl against a doctor. A 16-year-old homeless girl repeatedly works as a surrogate mother for money. A human rights attorney tries to rescue her, but inevitably faces difficulties.
The film has previously participated in the 49th Belgrade International Film Festival in the Serbian capital, Belgrade, the Tokyo International Film Festival, the 21st Asiatica Film Festival (Asiatica – Encounters with Asian Cinema), in Rome, Italy.
Dormishian’s film won the Best Feature Film Award, Best Audience Award and NETPAC Award of the 21st Asiatica festival.
The festival will also highlight Belgian cinema (with exclusive feature films and special screenings) and, most importantly, young talents from the country with a dedicated short film competition. A conference about cinema professionals will ask the questions: “Where are female directors in the history of cinema? What is the place of women in the film industry?”
Moreover, the festival will program 14 Belgian premieres, including ‘The Big Hit,’ by Emmanuel Courcol, which will be the opening film, and ‘My Father’s Stories,’ by Jean-Pierre Améris, which will close the event.
The festival will also pay homage to filmmaker Jaco Van Dormael on July 11.
