The term “filmfarsi” refers to the rowdy and melodramatic popular films created in Iran during the period leading up to the country’s cultural revolution of 1978–79. This documentary provides a fascinating archeology of what the Guardian (UK) calls “the biggest secret in cinema history”—a vibrant Iranian film culture full of song, dance, sex, and car chases—and a compelling window into a lost past. (84 mins., DCP)
