The Armenian-Iranian co-production centers on a young woman living in disguise in a village in Karabakh.
Armenia has selected Yeva, directed by Anahit Abad, as its contender for the best foreign-language film race at the Oscars.
The Armenian-language Armenian-Iranian co-production centers on Yeva, a young Iranian woman who escapes her in-laws with her daughter after her husband’s tragic death and takes refuge in a village in Armenia's Karabakh. Being a complete stranger in the village, Yeva is now obliged to live her life in disguise.
The film was co-financed by the National Cinema Center of Armenia and Iran's Farabi Cinema Foundation.
Yeva was released theatrically in Armenia on Sept. 24. It is Armenia's sixth foreign-language Oscar submission since the country became independent in 1991. None of the previous submissions has been nominated.
