A Persian Epic is a visually breathtaking cinematic shadow play and an all-age adventure, created by Hamid Rahmanian, an Iranian-American graphic designer and filmmaker who recently created a new edition of Shahnameh, in collaboration with Larry Reed. The play unfolds an action-packed magical tale of star-crossed lovers from the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh (The Book of Kings). Inspired by Iranian visual traditions, Rahmanian uses puppets, costumes, masks, scenography and digital animation to bring the story to life on a cinema-sized screen. The show features original music by Loga Ramin Torkian & Azam Ali.
