Must: Buddha collapsed out of shame

Movies about young people and by very young directors are a notable feature of Iranian cinema and the latest striking picture from that country, Buddha Collapsed out of Shame, centres on a six-year-old Afghan girl searching for an education and is written and directed by 19-year-old Hana Makhmalbaf. Her father is the leading Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf, and her sister, Samira Makhmalbaf, had a feature film in competition in Cannes before she was 18.
