GAAV/THE COW (article first published : 2005-10-17)

The Pietermaritzburg-based University Film Club is showing Daryush Merju'i's 1968 film Gaav/The Cow on October 20.

Rumour has it that after seeing Daryush Mehrju'i's The Cow, the Ayatollah Khomeini suggested that there might indeed be a place for film-making in the Islamic Republic, thus creating the space for the Iranian "new wave".

The film tells the story of Masht Hassan, the devoted owner of the only cow in a poor rural village. One day, when he is away on business, the cow unexpectedly dies and the villagers try their best to keep its death a secret.

Films are shown in the Centre for Visual Arts Lecture Theatre in Ridge Road at 6 pm. (Safe parking is available by entering the double gate immediately above the CVA; the gate will be opened between 17h45 and 18h00)
