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.

Fellini_Fiend87

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.
