Night travel (6+)

NIGHT TRAVEL

"Since mythological cavemen times, stories keep founding families, communities and nations; they define relationships and create lovers, friends, often enemies; some of these stories end up making history, be it intentionally or not."   
Sahebdivani (Iran)

night_travel

Night Travel is Dutch-Iranian Sahand’s personal story. He was only three years old when his mother woke him up and told him they had to flee Iran through the mountains. His own adventures are combined with folk stories related to him by his father; the only heritage he could take from his home country. This story gives children an insight into what it means to have to leave your country and start all over. Sahand is accompanied by live music on the kanun.
