A friendly rivalry with Flaherty informs the venture, a record of vital importance for Rouch, Herzog, GŁney, et al.

Although the 75-year-old footage is in black and white and lacks a soundtrack, the hardship and determination of the tribesmen and women is searingly evoked.

A fascinating, visually splendid film about the massive annual migration undertaken by Persia's Bakhtiari tribes in search of fresh pastures for their cattle.

It is an unusual and remarkable film offering, one that is instructive and compelling but in no way a story. Yet, in this picture, there is drama interspersed with captivating comedy.

The intertitles of this silent film may seem dated, yet the images of this real-life journey through deserts, across rivers and over mountains continues to inspire wonder in the viewer.

If DW Griffith, Ernest Rutherford and Rudyard Kipling could collaborate on a movie, it might look like this.

Deliberately styled as a story of man's triumph over nature, Grass is as much a mythic narrative of migration and settlement as a simple travelogue.
