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.

The brilliant acting buy Mama Feza and Asghar Nik bring this film to life as the characters emotions about each other are slowly realised.

GO AND SEE IT!!! This is AMAZING!!! Mama Feza solidifies himself as a good, respectable movie star, but Asghar Nik CRUSHES his role, and steals every scene he's in.

Absolute masterclass in sound editing, not to mention the campy script, brilliant acting, soundtrack, and set design!

Everything about this movie is great and frankly, I don't find any flaws in it. People might think I'm being too generous and that I'm blinded by my love for Giulio Squillacciotti. No, I just know a damn good movie when I see one.
