Movie Info

This moving documentary by Merian C. Cooper follows the journey of the Bakhtiari, an impoverished nomadic tribe in Iran, in their never-ending search for fresh grass for their herds. The tribe must traverse snow-capped mountain passes and hazardous terrain. All the while the question looms over them: Will they get their herds to the grazing fields before the animals die of starvation? This film is considered one of the earliest ethnographic documentaries.

    A good doc. from the silent days. It's about 2 filmakers and a female journalist going on a 4 month excursion with a tribe of 50k people through Persia looking for grasslands.Really amazing footage of deserts, mountains, and rivers. The river crossing scene is breathtaking and timeless.
