Shot in the other-worldly landscape of Iran’s salt-encrusted Lake Urmia, THE WHITE MEADOWS (KESHTAR HAYE SEPID) follows a man who moves from village to village to hear people’s sorrows and collects human tears for an unstated purpose. Rahmat moves along the waterline in his rowboat, each stop the site of remarkable events and adventures. Gorgeously shot and filled with arresting images, THE WHITE MEADOWS (KESHTAR HAYE SEPID) is a powerful allegory for the situation in modern Iran. By creating his own mythological language and setting it against such a physically strange landscape, director Mohammad Rasoulof has created a film that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
