First screened in February 2020
Director: Ehsan Khoshbakht. Documentary about Iranian films produced before the 1979 revolution that deposed the Shah.

Twitter Capsule: Rich, surprising archive of pre-revolutionary Iranian cinema engrosses, even if structure, editing logic remain erratic.

VOR:   As a documentary, I frankly found it a little listless, but so much of this footage has vanished over the years that preserving so much is valuable.
