Duration
90’’
Director
Aliona van der Horst

Ever since the earthquake of December 2003, Bam in Southern Iran has been nothing but rubble and ruin. Not only have its walls crumbled, exposing kitchens and courtyards, but the hearts of its people appear to have fallen open too. The film also touches upon the relationship between men and women in Iran and their relationship to God. Above all, Voices of Bam is an ode to the indefatigable life-force embodied by the people of this town.
