Gabbeh

  • I'm telling you, wearing those scarfs make you grey

A gabbeh is a type of carpet made in Iran. Gabbeh is also the name of the heroine of this story, a young woman who comes across an old couple while they are busy examing a gabbeh. She explains the story written in the carpet, showing how it reveals her life: she was in love with a man her father forbade her to marry. The lover follows her family at a distance while they trek around the countryside.

The film is in Sarsi with English subtitles, and is banned in Iran for being 'subversive'.
