Spectacle Theater (124 S. 3rd St., Brooklyn)

Gabbeh is a critically acclaimed masterpiece by prolific Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf, which weaves fiction and documentary to create a colorful dreamworld set in the idyllic mountains of Iran. The film explores the world of nomadic carpet makers while simultaneously telling a story of young love in such a way that mimics the weaving of the gabbeh (carpet) that the story is centered around. An inspiring window into a part of Iranian culture that is rarely ever seen and very near extinction.
