The Mongols (Mogholha)
Ali Mirza, Fahimeh Rastegar, Parviz Kimiavi, Edris Chamani, Teimour Bubak / Fiction / Persian
A TV director prepares a new film while his wife, a scholar, researches the Mongol invasion of Iran; ten Turkmen are cast as Mongols in a historical epic about the invasion; television comes to remote rural Iran. These are some of the elements that make up this astonishing work of 1960s cinematic modernity, comparable to the best achievements of Godard and Pasolini. [PG]
