Director: Katayoun Afrooz
Producer: Katayoun Afrooz
A voyeuristic look on how an Iranian women is dancing a 14th century “pray dance” in an Iranian desert honoring the four elements.
Fire was of supreme importance in Iranian rituals. In ancient Iran, fire was considered a deity and highly sacred element.
Here the ātaš/Fire is represented by the sun.
Air/ḥawā that represents intellect is the wind in the dancer’s dress.
The earth/ḵāk or foundation of life is the desert and
water/āb element is connected to wisdom, intuition, and fluidity in Iranian culture.
