Bahman Ghoabdi, a Kurdish filmmaker, in his debut feature film, A Time for Drunken Horses (2000), captures the lives of orphaned and impoverish Kurdish children fighting for their survival. The bleak poverty that looms over the real lives of these non-actor children, who struggle for their survival as they smuggle goods across the trough, freezing terrain, has been movingly captured through his documentary style. It made this film a standout and unique example of the “children’s cinema” genretion in Iran. The recipient of the Caméra d'Or at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival.
