The Flying Carpet

O Tapete Voador

Directed by João Mário Grilo
Portugal, 2008


Persian carpets entered Europe via Portugal to establish one of the most important cultural traditions in terms of decorative arts in the West. 500 hundred years later, we return to Iran to discover their original gestures of fabrication & the hypnotic forms & colors still maintain their freshness.
