A Brief Peace - Shahre Khamooshan - شهر خاموشان

A Brief Peace - Shahre Khamooshan - شهر خاموشان

Ata Hayati's fly-on-the-wall documentary is a broad study of the formalities, rituals and suffering surrounding death. Filmed on a single day at Behesht Zahra, Tehran's largest cemetery, Hayati observes mourners at different stages of the mourning and burial process as they each try to find 'a brief peace' from the suffering of loss. From the business-like arrangements of death registration to the artistry of carving and painting funeral stones, from the solitary howls of mothers to the group celebration of loved ones through music, this film provides fascinating and moving insight into grief and remembrance.
