Grass: A Nation's Battle for Life (1925)

A silent documentary which follows a branch of the Bakhtiari tribe of Persia as they and their herds make their seasonal journey to better pastures.


This is an incredible piece of documentary filmmaking. The river and the mountain climbing scenes are astonishing. Never would have thought of fording a river the way they do. Might be one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen.
