Iranian movie, 'A Man of Integrity', took home awards for best director for Mohammad Rasoulof as well as best actor for Reza Akhlaghirad, at the Antalya International Film Festival 2017. 

The movie centres around corruption and injustice in the country. Writer-director Mohammad Rasoulof was arrested alongside acclaimed director Jafar Panahi in 2010 and sentenced to jail, according to Reuters reports. He is free on bail and has continued to make films that explore political and moral corruption.

Variety called “A Man of Integrity” “a tense, enraging drama about corruption and injustice ... a scathing critique of contemporary Iranian society ... (that) manages to resonate on both specific and universal levels”.
