Visit to the border with Afghanistan
My journey through Iran took me to the village of Zug on October 15, 2018. The place is located in South Khorasan in Mashad region. On the spot live four, five people, I am told. Upon arrival, I am offered tea and pastries. No one seems interested in why I am here or why I want to film. While the inhabitants harvest barberries, the village elder tells me something about the village. During the harvest, no one has time to go to the mosque. Nevertheless, the muezzin’s call resounds over the plain via a tape recorder.
This film is the result of this encounter.
