Iran on the Road

Director: Alberto Martin, 2019, Italy, 4 minutes, Documentary

Iran: a road trip through the ancient land of Persia. From Teheran, a 15 million people vibrant metropolitan area, to get lost in Shiraz’s bazars and café’s, crossing then the legendary ancient city of Persepolis, Yazd, Meybond, Isfahan, Kashan. A 1300 kilometers-long road trip through endless spaces and magnificent landscapes. Bazars, tea houses in the middle of nowhere, the complexity of the magnificent artworks insides the Mosques in contrasts with the small streets of historical Yazd, in which the perfume of freshly baked bread keeps you going in an incredible journey. Kids playing in the streets, a crowd of families having a picnic in every public garden: “Where are you from?” they’ll ask while offering you a cup of tea. “Welcome to Iran.”
