During the street riots against the Pahlavi dynasty in 1978-79, the rebels burned down
more than 50 movie theaters in the Iranian capital city, Tehran. After the ideological
revolution of 1979, those who considered cinema as a degenerate art collected some
copies of fiction films and set them on fire. As a result, the history of Iranian cinema
is silently buried, unnoticed. Tehran, as the location for most Iranian films, is the best
history witness of such actualities. This project is a cinematic, anthropological discovery,
and an anthology of the history of Iranian cinema.
