Facing Mirrors, a film about sex-change in Iran, has won the Circle Award at this year's Washington, DC International Film Festival.

Much like Iran's first Oscar winning film, A Separation, Facing Mirrors also received awards in Iran's state funded annual film festival - but is yet to be granted a public release.
