This moving documentary by Merian C. Cooper follows the journey of the Bakhtiari, an impoverished nomadic tribe in Iran, in their never-ending search for fresh grass for their herds. The tribe must traverse snow-capped mountain passes and hazardous terrain. All the while the question looms over them: Will they get their herds to the grazing fields before the animals die of starvation? This film is considered one of the earliest ethnographic documentaries.
Director: Merian Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack
