    • Ascension (Rising to Heaven)

      year: 2005 / 85 min

      In the modern world, ancient nomadic tribes are near annihilation and most of them have given up their nomadic habits for being settled on a piece of land. This film is a documentary about customs and rituals of Shahsavan tribe that lives in northwestern part of Iran in a nomadic way and leads a living through raising sheep and grazing animals. On the foots of 4,800-m Sabalan Mountain live nomadic people who are shepherds and speak Turkish. This current film, in fact, is an inside look at the life of a shepherd who has no choice but to take refuge in a cave after he loses his beloved girl, his mother, as well as the flock he was supposed to graze. Soon he makes the acquaintance of an astronomer who has come to study a 6,000-year-old Stonehenge in that region and the subsequent friendship leads to a great development in the hopeless and desperate life of the shepherd; a development which culminates in his ‘ascension’. The film takes us along 180-km path of the tribe’s immigration, which takes place every year, to make us familiar with their customs, rituals, marriage ceremony, as well as occupation of tribal women

    • The Color of Blood is Red

      year: 2005

      This is my habitat. My generation grows up in forest. We form families, bear offspring and fall in love. Our voice is the song of the forest.This is a picture of my ancestors on a stone. The picture has been drawn thousands of years ago when we were friends with human beings. People at that time did not kill us for pleasure, but they killed a few of us only to survive. They did not mean to make us extinct. We coexisted with humans in forests. Today, however, I am going to be killed not for survival of humans, but because they enjoy to kill me. If you don’t believe me just listen to hunters who carry guns with telescopes and sharp knives.It was a good time when we lived freely in the forest. Everything was beautiful and safe until civilized men carrying guns with telescopes came into the forest. It’s very bad… because killing me with such a gun is very easy… an unequal duel.The men who come into the forest have everything; from bullets and sharp knives to clothes, which are the same color as the forest and it is hard to see them. They are not like us. My long horns that were once bestowed upon my by Nature in order to defend myself are now a big trouble because they make me be seen anywhere I go, just unlike hunters.Today is a feast for humans.Local people are skilled in arranging a bonfire. I am to be roasted on this fire today… It would be a good roast. First my liver and then other parts of my body will be eaten by humans.The smoke from the roast will spread in the forest and linger as the only memory of meThe color of my blood is red just like human blood… Today the sole similarity between us and humans is the color of our blood… But this common color is no longer a reason for friendship with humans… Our blood is spilled very easily and pours into streams and rivers to reach oceans and fade in the course of history. Tell human beings not to kill us. The color of blood is red; be it a human or a deer.
