53 minutes
Director: Aref Mohammadi
Performers: Dr. Edward Keall, Sue Canten, Dr. Yousef Moradi

Original English version with Farsi subtitles.

Mohammadi portrays an enthusiastic connoisseur of Iran: until the revolution of 1978, the British-Canadian archaeologist Dr. Edward Keall undertook expeditions to explore ancient Zoroastrian temples of the late-antique Sassanids. His explorations led to the important discovery and excavation of Yazdegerd Castle in Kermanshah in western Iran. The ancient pre-Islamic civilizations represent an immense cultural heritage that is worth a fresh look in light of current post-colonial discussions.
