About the film :

Teatr Biuro Podrozy ( Poland ) take their universally acclaimed anti war epic Carmen Funebre to Iran to the 23rd International Fadjr Theatre Festival, Tehran. The response from the audience is overwhelming as it from 80 to 1000 people over three days. The passion play performed on stilts and giant leather-masked warlords towering two metres high give the opening scenes a sense of tangible menace. The fifty minute performance evokes symbols of rape, torture and killing. A thoroughly contemporary view on Iran's own passion play Ta'zieh.
Kazem Mollaie , a graduate film student from Sooreh University came every night with his DVcam Recorder to film Carmen Funebre at Fadjr Theatre Festival 2005. He gave it as a gift to Jane Frere the company's tour producer on their departure. The film says as much about the warmth and generous spirit of the Iranian audience as it does about this powerful piece of anti war theatre that has been shown in 38 countries across five continents.
