Ebrahim GolestanStill: The Crown Jewels of Iran
Ebrahim GOLESTAN (1922, Iran) grew up in a well-to-do family. He founded his own film studio, Golestan Films, in 1957. After meeting the controversial Iranian artist Forugh Farrokhzadher in 1958, he became a close associate hers. Inspired by her to pursue his own artistic vision, he began directing his own short documentaries. In 1965 he released his first feature, Brick and Mirror. His second feature, The Secrets of the Treasure of the Jinn Valley (1974), would prove to be his last film: Golestan left Iran in 1975, settling in the United Kingdom and focusing completely on his writing.
