People of the Wind (1976)

Only available in Canada, United States

There are two hundred miles of raging rivers and impassable mountains to cross. There are no towns, no roads, no bridges. There is no turning back. The Bakhtiari migration is one of the most hazardous tests of human endurance known to mankind.

Every year, 50,000 men, women and children, along with one million animals, struggle for eight grueling weeks to scale Iran’s massive Zagros Mountains, a range which is as high as the Alps and as broad as Switzerland, to reach their summer pastures.

James Mason (as the voice of Jafar Qoli)
