Film of the Week #271: Buda as sharm foru rikht AKA Buddha Collapsed Out of Shame (2007)

Image

Summary:
A young girl zealously wants to go to school and learn to read and write. Almost everywhere she is met with hostility or indifference. The only young boy who takes her to his school is thrown out by the teacher, because helping her prevented him from coming in time. It must not go unnoticed that the schoolgirls and the female teacher are likewise hostile toward this girl. None of them want her in the classroom. On her way home she and other girls are taken as prisoners by boys playing Talibans. They tear her school book to pieces (or rather what was left of it after the schoolgirls had done the same thing. The Taliban boys" threaten to stone their girl prisoners. The girl's attempts end in complete failure.

Seen, after all I sat in the jury which picked it as the winner of the film club award at the Kiev Film Festival in 2008. (Molodist)

It also fits the War challenge

Found the summary of Molodist:

This year’s grand prix (Jury led by Armand Assante) and the Scythian Deer were awarded to “Buddha Collapsed Out of Shame” by Hana Makhmalbaf (Iran) and “Sultes” (Shultes) by Bakur Bakuradze (Russia).

“Huddersfield” (Hadersfild) by Ivan Zivkovic (Serbia) was called the best full-length fiction film, and “Rene” directed by Tobias Nolle (Switzerland) became the best short film. The prize for the best student film was awarded to “Goleshovo” by Ilian Metev (Bulgaria / United Kingdom), and audience award was given to the short “Hold on” by Damien Roussineau (France).

The niche Jury prizes:

Prize of the Ecumenical Jury
Un cœur simple (France)

FIPRESCI prize
Versailles (France)

International Film Club Prize
Buddha Collapsed Out of Shame (Iran)

I'll just mention this as it only had 7 movies to beat to win, so you see some of the competition. Some that aren't mentioned are f.ex. a japanese one, a canadian one and an ukranian one.

-----

But of course. Buddha Collapsed Out of Shame won audience awards in a lot of festivals that year.

Blame IMDB. I edited out a little bit before posting and I would have edited it more if I had seen the film before starting the thread. Although, it doesn't even mention

her trying to get a notebook or pencil. The eggs breaking after someone runs into the child :(
If I had written the summary on my own, I would have just said something like "A girl wants to go to school while her mother is away."

I liked the film. A little weird. The boat scene (l) Most of the kids in the film are annoying evil brats who

, so idk how realistic this film is. Even the main character annoyed me at times. 7/10
