Iran's Tavakkoli makes film for UNICEF

Award-winning Iranian filmmaker Bahram Tavakkoli has made a short film for the United Nations International Children's Fund (UNICEF).

'Simply Happy' focuses on children and young adults, showing them how to derive happiness from the simple things in life.

The 25-minute documentary, Tavakkoli's latest production, was filmed in Tehran and a number of other cities in northern Iran.

Tehran's 25th International Fajr Film Festival awarded Bahram Tavakkoli the Best First Film Director Prize for his Barefoot in Heaven, which was also screened at Italy's 2008 Religion Today Film Festival.
