Samira Makhmalbaf, 20, became the youngest director to have a film in the Cannes Film Festival's competition category with her latest, "Blackboard". The film has received glowing reviews and she's been the talk of the town.

Here are some photos taken by her brother, Maysam, during the shooting of "Blackboard", in Iran's Kurdistan. The film tells the story of a group of teachers trekking up stony mountain paths in search of illiterates to educate.
