Tehran Anar Nadarad! [Tehran Has No More Pomegranates!] (2006)
Director: Massoud Bakhshi
68 minutes
Persian; Turkish and English subtitles

Crazy, dynamic and ironic, this film takes us on a journey into the history of Tehran with Massoud Bakhshi’s film crew as they are faced with the impossibility of completing their initial project. In this both humoristic and critical portrait of a major city, Bakhshi joyfully plays with fact and fiction to depict the reality in Tehran today. From the city’s foundation to a small rural village where pomegranates still grow, from well-known oppressors to outstanding anonymous bystanders, Bakhshi succeeds in documenting 150 years of history and its contradictions.

With a combination of experimental attributes, the film includes fictional, documentary, comedy and even musical genres, making it an extraordinary documentation of urban history.
