Tabaki (The Mourners)


Bahman Kiarostami


25 minutes

Farsi with English subtitles

After a promising debut with A Trip to the Traveler's Land in 1994, Bahman Kiarostami (son of filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami) returns with this charming documentary film about mourners-for-hire who are called upon to attend funerals in Iran.

With an understated, lighthearted style, Tabaki presents a fascinating view of a peculiar occupation within this religious culture, offering in the process an insightful portrait of the society as a whole.

This film is available with a Digital Site License (DSL), which allows colleges, universities, or libraries to encode, locally host, and stream the film to their community on a closed, password-protected system.
