A film by an Iranian director about capital punishment has won the top prize at the Berlin International Film Festival.
Mohammad Rasoulof was banned from directing in 2017.
He produced There Is No Evil, his sixth film, in secret.
He is unable to travel outside Iran owing to charges relating to his earlier films.
Rasoulof’s daughter Baran, who also stars in the film, received the Golden Bear on his behalf.
