"Throw the stone to the water", 31 December 2000
Author: mkian from Toronto, Canada

A film director who can not make a film in his own country, decides to make a documentary film about funeral traditions in Iran for a foreign producer. At first he remembers death of his friends and it causes thinking about his own death. But his point of view about life changes little by little when he is making the new film. Finally he detects beauties of the world and nature and decides to change his perspective about them. The only thing I can say about Farmanara's last film is that it's the true story of his own generation. A generation who passed many bitter experiences and now tries to forget all (not with its negative meaning) and review all the things around.
