Bahman Tavoosi And Making Of "The Names Of The Flowers"
By: Patrick Roy
Directed by Bahman Tavoosi, The Names of the Flowers tells the story of Julia an old countryside teacher who is invited to share her historical story with the world; passing a bowl of peanut soup to the captured Che Guevara in her classroom while he recited a poem about flowers to her hours before his death. The invitation is cancelled soon after, as other women step forward with the same “soup and flower” story. Premiered at Talinn Black Nights Film Festival Films, the jury has decided to give the film the Special Jury Prize for its outstanding cinematography. We had the chance to sit with Bahman Tavoosi to know more about making this powerful film.
