Iranian director Farshid Azari’s documentary “Drops Give Life” will go on screen at the 17th edition of the International Festival of Documentary Films on Human Rights-Bir Duino, which will be held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan from November 27 to December 1.
The film follows the life of Masht Hossein, a compassionate rancher who deeply values nature. Despite facing challenging conditions, Masht Hossein has dedicated over three decades to trekking through unforgiving terrain to provide water for the parched animals and birds in the drought-ridden area.
The International Festival of Documentary Films on Human Rights-Bir Duino is dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights and 25th anniversary of the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders.
This film has already received awards such as the special award of the 22nd Baikal Environmental Film Festival in Russia, as well as the "ECO Prague" award, the oldest environmental festival in Europe.
