Janbal, tells the legend of a love story between man and fairy which takes place in the island of Hormoz – in the Persian Gulf.
Musa, a southern artist, collects the worn-out leg-covers “Paachaks” of native women from the washed-out rubbish found on the shore and recycles them to make his own art. These art works lay the groundwork for a modern legendary story; It has been told that there was a tradition in the past, where Island people would offer the clothes of a dead person to Mother Sea, so she could clean that person’s soul…
At the crossroads of video art, performance and documentary, the movie invites the viewer in the imaginary of Musa and travel to the depths of the beliefs, imaginations, and esotericism of the people of Southern Iran.
