Granaz Moussavi ‘lost everything’ making her new film, When Pomegranates Howl

The second feature by Granaz Moussavi presents Kabul through the eyes of a street-smart boy working to support his family.

Granaz Moussavi is an Iranian-Australian filmmaker and poet. Her debut feature film, My Tehran for Sale, won multiple awards and is an internationally acclaimed Australian-Iranian co-production.

When Pomegranates Howl is the second feature by Moussavi – a cinéma vérité work in response to the true story of Australian armed forces carrying out an attack in Afghanistan, in which two young boys were killed.
