Feathers of Fire: A Persian Epic is a visually stunning cinematic shadow play for all ages. The play details an action-packed magical tale of star-crossed lovers — Zaul and Rudabeh — from the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh, whose love triumphs against all odds.

Hamid Rahmanian’s graphics, derived from the visual tradition of the region, are rendered as puppets, costumes, masks, scenography, and digital animation, all of which will come to life in a “live animation” shadow cast technique perfected by shadow master Larry Reed on a cinema-size screen. The play also features an original score by the acclaimed musical team, Loga Ramin Torkian and Azam Ali.
