News & Interviews for Grass
Critic Reviews for Grass
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.
[A] marvelously well-photographed record of human life in outlying parts of the world.
A friendly rivalry with Flaherty informs the venture, a record of vital importance for Rouch, Herzog, Güney, et al.
Audience Reviews for Grass
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.
