Directed by Mohsen Makhmalbaf. Exiled Iranian film master Mohsen Makhmalbaf (Kandahar), a self-proclaimed agnostic, journeys with his moviemaker son to the magnificent gardens at the Bahá’í Faith headquarters in Israel. There the two directors depict and debate the pros and cons of religion in society. “The filmmaker once responsible for virtuoso, tragicomic social critiques like The Cyclist (1987) and Marriage of the Blessed (1989) now delicately works to see how beautiful the world can look when people embrace each other’s differences.” –Village Voice. Cleveland premiere.
