Films about 1970s Iran

Tehran Bureau’s post, “Two films depict 1970s Iran,” contains two full-length videos of interest on Iran.

The first is by a “well-known French filmmaker, Albert Lamorisse, under the auspices of Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Art, produced the poetic film “Lovers’ Wind” (1969).”

The second is “an ostentatious propaganda film of the same commission that was originally rejected for it’s inadequate portrayal of Iran’s nouveau-modernism (urban youth, industrial marvels) and it’s overly-lyrical style.”

See the videos here.
