A nomadic odyssey through the mountains of Iran

The Qashqua'i are native Iranian nomadic herders who spend their lives on a gruelling migration across the Zagros mountains. With unprecedented access to one of the world's most insular and secretive countries, this film follows Bezad, a charismatic & highly articulate Qashqa'i shepard on his spectacular 500km migration across the mountains of Iran.
