What we like

The film which was honoured during the first day of the International Conference.

  • Franco-Afghan
  • Golshifteh Farahani
  • Cinematographic Dramaturgy




Syngue Sabour is a Franco-Afghan film. The notable protagonist is actress Golshifteh Farahani who watches over her older husband in a decrepit room who is abandoned by his companions of the Jihad and also by his brothers.

She decides to tell the truth to him about her feelings about their relationship to her silent husband which she had kept deep inside her for the past 10 years.

This paralysed man unconsciously becomes syngue sabour (a magical black stone) which according to Persian mythology, is known to absorb plight of those who confide in it.

In this wait for her husband to come back to life, she struggles and finds refuge in her aunt's place, who is a prostitute. What happens after weeks of looking after him and her confessions is what this film is all about.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
