    Crossing the Dust

    While the American invasion of Iraq is in its initial stages, two Kurdish militants heading home from Iraq encounter a major obstacle: a little boy (named after the deposed dictator) searching for his missing parents. The younger, idealistic soldier is determined to help the lost child; the older man, physically maimed and psychologically scarred by years of fighting, wants nothing to do with the kid. As the trio travel in search of the boy's family, they encounter a land filled with righteous holy men and stoic American troops, abandoned corpses and looting villagers, mass graves and marauding youths. Evoking both classic Italian neorealism and the roots of Iranian cinema's recent renaissance, Shawkat Amin Korki's humanistic parable paints a tragic picture of life during wartime. Even those who are shellshocked and who have had their innocence stolen are capable of hope for a better tomorrow.US Premiere

    Film: The Colors of Memory --- Mill Valley Film Festival

    Bay Area - San Francisco Tuesday - October 9, 2007     09:45 PM

    The Colors of Memory

    Layers of metaphor knit one man's path of discovery from a broken life back to his now earthquake-ravaged childhood home in Iran. Returning from abroad ostensibly to perform surgery, Dr. Parsa sees modern Iran through the eyes of his young driver, while at the same time he rediscovers the soul of the culture under the tutelage of his father's old friend. A quest to revive the family's palm groves and the search for a childhood love evolve into an unexpected pilgrimage, not only to the spiritual center of a country in transition but also to the soul of a man who's been adrift, devoid of spirit and heart. Part road trip, part vision quest, The Colors of Memory highlights both the value of remembrance and the vitality of place as that which feeds and forms us. North American Premiere
