bahman ghobadi recommends

(MIFF 2005, Homelands Now: The Middle East in Focus)

Proposed by Bahman Ghobadi for MIFF 05, this programme is an eclectic selection of short films from one of the least-known filmmaking cultures in the world. Diverse and stylistically adventurous, these films broaden our understanding of Kurdish cinema and culture, and also provide a context for Ghobadhi's own work. * [A Window Facing the Sun] (Bijan Zaman Pira, 12 mins) * [Cinema that Becomes Wet All Over Under the Rain] (Nahid Ghobadi, 12 mins) * [The Broken Soldier] (Batin Ghobadi, 20 mins) * [Let's Not Mud the Water] (Bijan Zaman Pira, 22 mins) * [DAF] (Bahman Ghobadi, 39 mins)
