An elderly couple go about their routine of cleaning their gabbeh (a intricately-designed rug), while bickering gently with each other.

Rating: Not Rated (Contains nothing objectionable)
Because of his special gift in identifying objects by the sounds they make, a blind young boy is employed as a string instrument tuner in a small village in Tajikistan. He may be blind but that does not mean he cannot see. On his way to work, he could tell the quality of the bread the young girls along the streets are peddling by simply touching their ware. His world is made more colorful and quaint because of his sensitivity to his surroundings. The only problem is that he is easily "tempted" by street musicians' performances and arrives late at work.
















THE GARDENER (2012)


Release Date: October 8th, 2012 (theatrical)

Run Time: 87 mins

Picture: 1080p (1.78:1 Aspect Ratio)

Sound: LPCM 2.0

Starring: Ririva Eona Mabi, Paula Asadi, and Bal Kumari Gurung

Written by Mohsen Makhmalbaf

Directed by Mohsen Makhmalbaf

Rating: Not Rated (Contains nothing objectionable)
The Gardener is a surreal film made using documentary-style techniques via the cameras of father and son (the Makhmalbafs) who go to Israel to learn about a religion (Baha'i faith) that they don't know much due to its taboo status in the country of both the filmmaker and the faith's birth - Iran.














Come back next Saturday for a brand new edition of Screenshot Saturday. Thank you for visiting.
