  • Tambourine

    2003. Iran. Written and directed by Bahman Ghobadi. With Hamed Mohamadi, Monire Zamani. The daf, a famed Iranian musical instrument crafted from sheepskin, holds special power among Kurds, as it is played at both birth and mourning ceremonies. In a Kurdish village near the Iraq border, Faegh, his three wives, and their eleven children make dafs; although the family members are all skillful players, Iranian cultural prohibitions dictate that the women play only in all-female gatherings, while the men play only among men. In Farsi; English subtitles. 30 min.

  • Life in Fog

This true story also inspired Ghobadi's debut feature A Time for Drunken Horses. In Farsi; English subtitles. 28 min.
