Blackboards

Blackboards

2000, Drama
Itinerant Kurdish teachers Said (Said Mohamadi) and Reeboir (Bahman Ghobadi) find many uses for the blackboards they tote, some of which actually pertain to education. Others include doubling as a gurney to carry a sick man, as shields from the warfare along the Iran-Iraq border and as a dowry so Said can wed the widow Halaleh (Behnaz Jafari). When Halaleh's son and a group of his peers tag along with Said and Reeboir, they try to impart their knowledge to the boys amid the surrounding chaos.
