Description
This pioneering documentary, directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack in cooperation with journalist Marguerite Harrison, records the travels of Bakhtiari Tribe of Persia (now known as Iran). A poor people, the Bakhtiaris must move on to fresh grazing land every six months, otherwise the nearly one million animals on which the 50,000 Bakhtiaris depend upon for survival will perish. In this case, the tribe was forced to scale a snow-covered mountain range, with their animals in tow, in order to move on to new pastures, with many of the Bakhtiaris making the journey in bare feet. Cooper and Schoedsack followed Grass: A Nation's Battle for Life with another adventure documentary, Chang, before moving on to dramatic features, including the classic King Kong. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
