Parnian to compete in Archaeology Channel Film Festival


Iranian documentary “Parnian” will compete in the Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival, which will be held in Eugene from May 1 to 5. The festival is held annually by the Shedd Institute.


In this unusual and haunting drama, Mr. Yaghmaei, an archaeologist excavating in the southern region of Iran with his wife and son, finds the skeleton of a young, pregnant woman containing the fetal bones of her unborn child. While he is still pursuing his excavations, the archaeologist's wife dies of an incurable genetic disease which also afflicts their adult son. Through a series of touching sequences portraying the familial love of father and son, the two story lines mingle, and finally entwine, expressing to us ineffable elements of the human condition.
