Poetic reconstruction of memories lost
After years, a woman has returned to Iran to sell her parental home. She fled the country as a child during the war with Iraq. Returning to the home of her early youth, she cautiously attempts to reconstruct memories she thought she had lost. Iranian Pouppe Theater has found a special way to represent the reconstruction. Using beautifully crafted maquettes and tiny puppets filmed by the performers, Flight 745 brings the war-tinged memories of the protagonist to life in a poetical manner.

“In 1987, during the war between Iran and Iraq, Marjan Poorgholamhossein was first introduced to the power of puppets.”
