Malek Korshid: A classic Iranian tale put to animation

[Vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/8617433%5D

Ali Akbar Sadeghi’s Malek Khorshid (from 1975) is based on one of the tales from the very famous Iranian epic of kings, Shahnameh. “Ali Akbar Sadeghi… is best known for pioneering a style that mixed traditional Persian coffeehouse painting and the surreal.” (from Ubu Web where you can also read the transcript of an interview)

The epic of the Shahnameh is written by the renowned Hakim Abol Qasem Ferdowsi Tusi. You can read the epic, in English, at the Iran Chamber Society.
