Awesome and lovely documentary for particular audiences and cinema friends, especially pro-Iranian film directors. The documentary of the grass actually deals with the Bakhtiar migration. It begins with fragments of the lives of the Arab and Iranian people while traveling to the central and southern areas, and ultimately lead to a huge going out. Their greatness can be understood from Extreme Long Shots. Watching this movie you will familiar acquainted with clan, with almost no urbanization, and this is a very painful topic. Foreign moviemakers are three of them who, with their time-honored facilities, can be said to have done a great deal, and they have worked very hard to show the truth of that time and geography. A striking point in this film is the confrontation with the hardships and difficulties of the going out. Crossing the Karoon River and passing the Yellow Mountain, the third largest mountain in Iran, shows the goodness of the efforts of women and children in rural areas. They do not go without purpose, they live in the grass and the artery of their lives, and they strive for it as they encounter the hardest hardships. They have the thought to succeed and they have all the power to reach the goal. If you like the history and documentary cinema and Iran, you are welcome to watch this movie.
