Gabbeh

gabbehpost1aA gabbeh is basically a handwoven Persian carpet. The film “Gabbeh” uses such a rug as a device to tell not only about their craft, but to tell a particular story. It’s magical and spellbinding as it talks about a specific nomadic tribe in southeastern Iran, the lives of a particular family, the story in one rug, color, nature and things larger than life. It’s also a film that centers on fiber art.
