The Winter Song - Ghate-ye zemestani (2002)


Nazbanu and her children are living in a highland in Delfak mountain. With the beginning of fall season, a strange teacher enters into this wilderness, and a very unconventional educating begins for the inhabitants. 

Director's View

The magic melody of "Nature" has always been pulling me and none of my works are free of this tight and invisible attachment.

The Winter Song is a song inspired from Nature and is dedicated to the Nature. This film is a logical continuity of my previous works.

And, from a general point of view, we understand that in this "Magic Trip", we get closer to the deep nature of human being which is the only left value of our Earth.

Cast: Simin Amidi, azbanu Mohammadyari, mad Zare-Panah, Mstafa Zare-Panah, ariborz Aghayee, srin Babapoor
