Silent Companion

Iran (MIFF 2005, fiction)

Director: Elham Hosseinzadeh

This is the kind of film that cameras were made for, a simple story of a man on a journey to Iran through the swamps of Iraq to bring a gown to his bride. From one of the most remote and endangered cultures, this is a must-see for its rarity if not for the beautifully lyrical storytelling.
