Product Description:

The region of Kurdistan and the Kurdish people are constantly in the news. However, the remoteness of the region, the and the infamous reticence of its inhabitants, means that it is an area that few outsiders are familiar with. This excellent documentary film focuses on the particular isolated part of Kurdistan in Iran (Kurdistan also occupies parts of Iraq and Turkey,) and the men who live there, known as dervishes. Dervishes are a tiny group within Islam that enter an ecstatic, religious trance that allows them to endure extreme discomfort and even pain. Explore the remarkable lives of the Dervishes of Kurdistan in this documentary that is particularly relevant at this time, and is suitable for educational use.
