A Nation's Battle
For Life - "A Must See Documentary"
A Classic Adventure by the Makers
of KING KONG
Selected for the Library of
Congress National Film Registry
A classic adventure by the
makers of "King Kong." In 1924, neophyte filmmakers Merian C.
Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack hooked up with journalist and
sometime spy Marguerite Harrison and set off to film an
adventure. They found excitement, danger and unparalleled drama
in the migration of the Bakhtiari tribe of Persia (now Iran).
Twice a year, more than 50,000 people and half a million animals
surmounted seemingly impossible obstacles to take their herds to
pasture. The filmmakers captured unforgettable images of courage
and determination as the Bakhtiari braved the raging and icy
waters of the half-mile-wide Karun River. Cooper and Schoedsack
almost froze when they filmed the breathtaking, almost
unbelievable, sight of an endless river of men, women and
children--their feet bare or wrapped in rags--winding up the
side of the sheer, snow-covered rock face of the
15,000-foot-high Zardeh Kuh mountain.
