BAKHTIARI MIGRATION documents (in visually splendid detail) the semi-annual journey, taking roughy five weeks and covering two-hundred torturous miles. Half a million people and millions of sheep and goats cross the rugged Zagros mountains in southern Iran twice yearly to move between summer and winter pastures.

I really, really enjoyed this! It is a great escape! I always enjoy learning about other people and lifestyles. You watch this and all you can think is, Wow! Amazingly strong and preserving people existing in the harshest climates and terrain. Kind of makes you ache for a simpler life, until you realize you are in a warm house, sipping hot tea, by the fire....

Absolutely fantastic. A must watch if you enjoyed Sweetgrass.

A beautifully made film, spectacular scenery. But it is the "forces of nature" including the character of the people that come through to make it it outstanding. A show of life and death challenges met straight on, with persistence, endurance, unity...as much as I hope their lives will become easier, I can't help but resent the value that will inevitably be lost.
