Archipelago is a journey through ancient myths, exorcism rituals, sounds and spirits. In the south of Iran, on a group of islands of the Persian Gulf, humans and spirits coexist since centuries. The culture and traditions of these Islands are the result of the encounters between Africa, the Arab Countries and Iran, generating a unique system of syncretic beliefs. Spirits of different heritages and origins, called Bad, the Persian word for wind, moving through the air, take possession of the islanders bodies and can only be quieted through a music ceremony called the Zar Ritual. Thanks to an unprecedented access given to foreign film makers, the Film showcases stories and landscapes of the islanders daily life within the frame of the Rituals, giving, through pounding drum rhythms and wailing vocal chorus, a rare and unexpected glimpse of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

I just came back from seeing this movie, twice! Yes, it is that good. The highlight in this film was definitely Mama Feza and Ashraf Zarnegari. Mama Feza gave such a convincing and emotional performance in a character who is so sensitive. Ashraf Zarnegari was really good at bringing to life such a character. I was really amazed at how good he was playing
