The Tongue of The Hidden
The poet Hafez, also known as the ‘Teller of Secrets’, used the language of human love and the metaphors of wine and drunkenness to describe his desire for the Divine and intoxication with the mysteries of the Universe.
The media usually present a narrow view of Iran. The film gives some insight into the depth and sophistication of Iranian [Persian] culture.
The landscapes and characters in the film are entirely constructed of Persian calligraphy.
