  • The White Meadows

    2009. Iran. Directed by Mohammad Rasoulof. With Hasan Pourshirazi, Younes Ghazali, Mohammad Rabbani. For 30 years, Rahmat the boatman has navigated the increasingly brackish waters around a coastal town, collecting the heartbreaking stories and—literally—the tears of the locals. Despite the best of intentions, he remains powerless to prevent their misguided attempts to atone for their sins, appease the gods, and make the land green once again. Writer-director Rasoulof has crafted an affecting, dreamlike allegory of intolerance, brutality, and superstition that resonates far beyond the borders of any one state. In Farsi; English subtitles. 93 min.
