The documentary Kurdish film Evan (A survivor's story) directed by Rafiq Fuad Yar Ahmadi was selected from thousands of films from around the world at the International Film Festival in Cambridge,UK, to compete in the main section for winning with 25 other films.


Movie director Rafiq Yar Ahmadi told PUKmedia on Sunday February 10th that the Kurdish film (Evan ..A survivor's story ) will compete in an international film festival among the thousands of films to win awards in Britain.


He explained that the activities of the International Student Film Festival will be launched on the 7th and 10th of March 2019 in Cambridge,Britain, in the presence of directors and producers of films participating in the festival.


The story revolves around a video journalist from Kurdistan, Middle East named Evan who is forced to remain aloof from his family. 


The writer and director of the film, Rafiq fuad Yar ahmadi, has a great similarity with Evan as he is also a journalist and filmmaker from Kurdistan. 


Both face the same problems due to the ISIS attack and are forced to leave their homeland for the lifetime. 


Rafiq fuad is expelled from his University in 2000 because he is a Kurdish, belongs to Sunni community and had a communist name ‘Rafiq fuad’. 


Being a video journalist, Evan films many incidents of the ISIS army. At one point, he films dead bodies, which lands him in serious trouble. Rafiq fuad with his wife, who is also a Kurdish journalist, worked for the Kurdish people’s rights to stop the rise of the Islamic state. 


But, the Iranian Government began an insidious campaign against them. As a result, they had to flee to Iran. Later in UK he remains in disguise as a refugee, a filmmaker and an interpretor.


The documentary (Evan) participated in several international film festivals and won two awards for the best short documentary film at the Film Festival Gault and virgin spring cinefest for 2018.


The film also competed in a number of international acclaim to win grand prizes.
