Movie Info

Directors Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack shot this film about the Bakhtiari tribe of southwestern Iran. Twice each year, this tribe herds over half a million animals across the treacherous waters of the Karun River. At one point, all of the tribe members must scale the 15,000-foot Zardeh Kuh mountain. This B&W film captures the simple bravery of these families as they tend to their large herds.

Audience Reviews for Grass

  • Jun 09, 2008
    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.
