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.

Stunning film that I could discuss endlessly. The cast was uniformly excellent! Asghar Nik really impressed me. Special mention to my favorite Mama Feza. This performances never disappoint, charm is unmatched and a beauty more intense than the sun itself.
