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.
For girls of the Kamas village, dolls are made when a piece of wood is wrapped in several layers of cloth. This documentary follows the very serious type of play-acting in which the girls engage as they exchange the ‘clothes’ of the dolls and enact adult rituals. More than playthings, the dolls act like alter-egos, only producing carefree smiles when they’re allowed to dance to wedding music.
