LOOK BACK: TCFF 2006
We’re bringing back one representative movie from each of our past nine years to give you another chance to see some of the movies that make the Traverse City Film Festival what it is-a celebration of Just Great Movies.
Four men from Tehran are on their way to the mountains for a weekend ski trip. As they round a curve, they encounter a boulder that sits on the edge of a cliff. Together they decide that the boulder must be pushed off that cliff. And, for the next 80 minutes, that’s what we see them try to do in this funny, poignant allegory by the acclaimed Iranian director Mani Haghighi. No matter what they try to do, the rock won’t budge. And neither will they. This is a great, small film that has many big things to say, and it won the Founders Award at the second annual Traverse City Film Festival.
