The performance of the ta'zieh─an Islamic passion play celebrating martyrdom─is the subject of this gripping and provocative documentary. With the rise of the Shiite sect in Iran, these plays became integrated with national folklore and were increasingly performed on the streets to inspire audiences with the story of Imam Hussein, martyred grandson of the prophet Muhammad. 64 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Persian; Subtitles: English. In Persian with English subtitles.
