UK Premiere Film Screening: 'Cechanok' by Maziyar Moshtagh Gohari on Thursday 18 June 2015 at 7.30pm at Deptford Cinema, 39 Deptford Broadway, SE8 4PQ, London
This observational, almost wordless documentary takes us into the strange & fascinating world of Arabic falconry, from the catching of a field mouse in Iran through to the competitive falcon shows of Abu Dhabi. Each stage is presented as a new chapter with long unbroken takes capturing the precision & patience required for each step of the process. Once captured the falcons embark on an incredible journey through dealers, markets & in some cases, cosmetic surgeons, en route to their strange new lives overseas. Cechanok is a restrained & poetic study of a unique & fascinating cultural practice.
Organised by the Open City Documentary Festival
