Iran-UK asylum film in Baftas spotlight


When the likes of Dame Judi Dench and Daniel Day-Lewis walk the red carpet at Sunday's Baftas ceremony, they will be joined by a little known Iranian-born writer and director called Tina Gharavi.

Her first feature film "I am Nasrine" is the story of a brother and sister who leave Iran and seek asylum on Tyneside and is nominated in the category for outstanding debut.
