    Film: Kobra's Decision --- Mill Valley Film Festival

    Kobra's Decision's%20Decision&page=1&pagemax=20&action=search&searchstr=iran&action=reset

    Kobra (Zeinab Sohrabi), a young orphan girl who shepherds in the Iranian countryside is summoned back to her tribe's camp, where she's issued an order from her guardian: Spend several days in town with a mysterious elderly woman. Reluctant to leave behind her life (and her beloved horse), Kobra goes, though she has a hard time in her new surroundings and yearns to rejoin her people. Like his previous film, the wonderfully fairy tale-like The Liar Shepherd (MVFF 2006), director Sirous Hassanpour's latest work has a folklore feel that's complemented by an impressive sense of poetic naturalism. Iranian cinema has long had a knack for making films about children; this fable on the importance of community and finding your place in the world speaks eloquently to audiences, whoever and wherever they are.
