In 1924, filmmakers Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack (King Kong) linked up with journalist and part-time spy Marguerite Harrison to film adventure, danger and unparalleled drama in the treacherous migration of the Bakhtiari tribe of Persia. Featuring unforgettable tableaus of courage and determination as the Bakhtiari braved the raging Karun River, this restored, full-length version with a new Iranian score will astonish audiences with its beautiful photography and heart-stopping adventure. GRASS: A NATION'S BATTLE FOR LIFE is a timeless tale of survival from a legendary filmmaking trio not to be forgotten.
