Summary
"One of the preeminent figures of Iranian cinema, Mohsen Makhmalbaf has written and directed an impressive array of acclaimed films, winning accolades at international film festivals and admiration of world cinema audiences. This collection presents three of his most lyrical works which the director has termed his Poetic Trilogy. Gabbeh tells of an elderly couple who stop by a stream to wash a Persian rug (gabbeh). A beautiful woman, depicted in the rug's elaborate design suddenly appears and tells a heart rendering story of love and loss. A film imbued with the ideas of Sufism. The Silence tells of Khorshid, a young blind boy from Tajikistan who earns rent money for his family by tuning rare instruments but becomes enraptured by the sonorous music he hears on his way to work each day. The Gardener is an imaginative documentary which follows Makhmalbaf and his son Maysam to Israel to investigate the Bahai faith. A religion with seven million followers which originated in Iran 170 years ago. As well as presenting a selection of insightful extras, this collection boasts stunning new restorations of Gabbeh and The Silence which truly bring the films' rich colors and imagery to life."--Container
