MIFF By-the-Sea 11: WIND WATER AND MUSIC: ETHNOGRAPHIC IRAN - BAAD (THE WIND)
[In Farsi with subtitles]
Sep 13 - 15, Sat 3:45, Sun 7:20
A poetic depiction of the story of the “Zar” spiritual ritual in southern Iran. Spirits ride the wind of the seas and spread illness to human beings. The Zar ceremony can free the body with the assistance of music and song. Those who perform this ceremony are called MamaZar or BabaZar (mother or father of the wind). Many of the events captured in this documentary have never been filmed before.
