FROM THE LAND OF SILENCE
SAKENINE SARZAMINE SOKOOT
FROM THE LAND OF SILENCE
Iran, 2004, 70 min, color

From the Land of Silence creates a narrative of child bandits against a stark, unforgiving landscape. Living in a desert outpost where their mostly-absent father is a truck driver on the salt flats, two young brothers ingeniously fleece the passing drivers, selling them everything from opium to stolen diesel fuel. An unexpected encounter with a man running away from life provides one of the brothers with a transformational glimpse into another dimension.
