Final Fitting
Directed by: Reza Haeri. 2009 / 33 min
FINAL FITTING follows Mr. Arabpour, a master tailor with a specialty in religious attire. He has been the official tailor to the most important religious leaders of Iran for the past several decades, including the late Ayatollah Khomeini, former President Mohammad Khatami, and the current Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. It’s a fascinating story about the variations of the ‘Aba’ and ‘Ammameh’ (the turban and the robe) and how they can differ in style depending on the political inclination of the man wearing them. The film showcases the changing cultural styles of Iran and its clerical elite through its portrait of one man and his time-honored craft.
