Focus Small Cultures? Great history!
Documentary, CAN/IR 2018, 60′
Director: Aref Mohammadi
A film of colours and sounds: SONG OF GOD leads to the enigmatic group of Yarsani (Ahl-e Haqq), which is widespread in the Iranian-Kurdish border region. Their religion is not only Shiite, but also has references to the Yezidi and Alevism; their culture and spiritual identity has been passed on for centuries by the masters of the tanbour lute.
Following: Conversation with Prof. Katajun Amirpur (University of Cologne), Aref Mohammadi (filmmaker), Mohammad Ehsani (filmmaker) and others.
