Iran does well at Cannes

Iran fared well at the Cannes festival.

Twenty-year-old Samira Makhmalbaf's 'Blackboards' shared the Jury Prize with Swedish director Roy Andersson's 'Songs from the Second Floor'.

And two other Iranian directors shared the Golden Camera award for their first films -- Hassan Yektapanah for 'Djomeh' and Bahman Ghobadi for 'The Time for Drunken Horses'.
