Feathers of Fire: A Persian Epic is a visually breathtaking cinematic shadow play for all ages. Inspired by the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh (‘The Book of Kings’), the action-packed tale follows star-crossed lovers Zaul and Rudabeh who triumph at the end against all odds. Hamid Rahmanian’s graphics, derived from the visual tradition of the region, are rendered as puppets, costumes, masks, scenography and digital animation, all of which come to life in a “live animation” on a cinema-size screen.

“Seeing cross-cultural and cross-generational audiences at performances of Feathers of Fire fulfills Rahmanian’s deepest dream: to share his homeland’s rich visual and literary culture with the West.” - Los Angeles Times
