Poet of the wastes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in Persian and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After administering rigorous examinations in science, religion and politics, the Iranian government assigns a handful of men from the nation's unemployed millions to the undignified job of street-cleaning. The crew is made up of ambitious young dreamers, including a pilot who stares into the sky and a musician who conducts over an orchestra of trash. One, a childlike poet, assembles scraps of a beautiful widow's unsent letters and reads of her lonely hopelessness. To comfort her, he anonymously mails her the original discarded poems of a renowned poet, accompanied by anonymous love letters in his own hand. As the two trade words--his in blank envelopes, hers in the trash--his care for this sorrowful woman grows into quiet love. But how could she ever fall for a destitute trashman? A tender, beautiful film, Poet of the Wastes is an eloquent prayer to the uplifting power of literature and simple acts of love

"In March 2012, Iranian movie 'A Separation' by Asghar Farhadi, won the Oscar Award for the Best Foreign Language Film. For the Iranian people this was more than a cinematic award. When sanctions and threats of war with Iran covered the world headlines, Farhadi talked about Iran's love for peace and the rich culture of the Iranians on the stage when receiving his award. This time the Iranians voice was heard through someone other than the government officials. This documentary shows the reaction of the Iranians to this Oscar award and has a general view on Iran's society of today" --IMDb
