Film Screening: Cechanok by Maziyar Moshtagh Gohari Past

Thursday, June 18, 2015 ,
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
- London, United Kingdom

This observational, almost wordless documentary takes us into the strange and fascinating world of Arabic Falconry, from the catching of a field mouse in Iran through to the bizarre competitive falcon shows of Abu Dhabi. Each stage is presented as a new chapter with long unbroken takes capturing the precision and patience required for each step of the process. Once captured the Falcons embark on an incredible journey through dealers, markets, and in some cases, cosmetic surgeons, en route to their strange new lives overseas. Cechanok is a restrained and poetic study of a unique and fascinating cultural practice.
