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....
