The poster advertising the opening of Europe's largest human rights film festival shows a 20-something brunette in leather pants ready to lasso, cowgirl-style, the attention of potential attendees. She's also wearing a green jacket. It's a good fit for the festival's opening film, "Green Days," by 21-year-old Iranian filmmaker Hana Makhmalbaf. Makhmalbaf's documentary also kicks off the focus on Iran-related film offerings in this year's One World Film Festival, which is sponsored by the Czech NGO People In Need.
