A series of 49 documentary films by 31 filmmakers, Children of the Land of Iran provides a window into the traditions, rituals and people within the rich and diverse culture of Iran.
A unique documentary that focuses on the lives of ""Jats,"" the term for cameleers in the south east of Iran. Jats, recompensed with an annual salary as well as camel calves, are very much under the thumbs of the flock owners, with little in the way of autonomy of their own. Shockingly, some of these jats are young children. This insightful takes place in Iran's central deserts, and follows the children of the nomadic tribes in the area.
