Une paix brève
(Shahre Khamooshan)

by Ata HAYATI

A Brief Peace - 4

Contrary to the Westerners who want to prolong their life, for the Orientals and specially the Muslims, death is the beginning of a new life which they embrace. At least once a week, the people of Tehran go the biggest cemetery in their town (Behesht Zahra) to find a “brief peace” with their dead. Presenting the culture of death in Iran, this documentary depicts how close death and life, laughter and tears, sadness and happiness can be. The cemetery is a meeting place, a picnic place, a playground and a training place for the soldiers.
