A film co-scripted by US-Iranian journalist Roxana Saberi won a prize in one of the Cannes Film Festival competitions on Saturday. "No One Knows About Persian Cats" won a special jury prize in the festival's Un Certain Regard competition. The film is a lively look at Teheran's underground music scene and the risk of censorship and jail faced by Iranian musicians. Saberi shares a screenplay credit on the film, which was directed and-co-written by her romantic partner, Bahman Ghobadi.
