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.

Saw the movie.. again and again. Besides the fact that the script is great, the actors are at their best.

All of the actors are fantastic too, Ashraf Zarnegari is the stand out here. Yes, this is probably due to the fact he is the star and given all of the emotional weight

This movie has a special place in my heart possibly because I've done the work that Camilla Insom has done before! Great choice of actors as well!
