    >
    >Kamancheh: 46 minutes
    >
    >Kamancheh (from the Persian words kaman, meaning
    >bow or arc, and cheh, meaning little) is one of
    >the oldest and most influential bowed
    >instruments in Eastern culture. Kamancheh, the
    >movie, explores the lives, work, and aspirations
    >of Iranian musicians who have devoted themselves
    >to this distinctive and challenging instrument.
    >The film transports viewers to the provinces of
    >Lorestan, Khorasan, Mazandaran, and Golestan to
    >meet master players in the context of the
    >communities in which they live in.
    >
    >Featured Musicians: Vali Rahimi, Bahram
    >Berdikor, Taghi Katuli, Ahmad Mohsenpour,
    >Ghodrat Sohrabi and the internationally
    >acclaimed Kayhan Kalhor.

    >
    >Pilgrimage: 52 minutes
    >
    >Despite the threat of mines, assassination, and
    >death by dehydration and starvation, determined
    >Shiite Muslims—as many as 3,000 a day—have been
    >pouring across the Iran-Iraq border since the
    >fall of the Iraqi government. They risk their
    >lives for only one reason: to visit the holy
    >shrine of Imam Hussein, in the city of Karbala,
    >fifty miles south of Bagdad. The intense
    >devotion of these pilgrims to Imam Hussein and
    >Karbala astounds outside observers at the same
    >time that it puts the Iranian government in a
    >major predicament. Torn between bureaucracy and
    >allegiance to Islam, Tehran is continually
    >revising its emigration policies, periodically
    >opening and then closing its border.
    >
    >In this highly detailed, beautifully filmed
    >documentary, the camera does not take sides.
    >Viewers see many facets of this issue and
    >experience a range of emotions while learning
    >about this historic event and about Iranian
    >culture and politics.
