synopsis

A remote brick manufacture factory produces bricks in an ancient way. Many families with different ethnicities work in the factory and the boss seems to hold the key to solving their problems. Forty-year-old Lotfollah, who has been born on-site, is the factory supervisor and acts as go-between for the workers and the boss. Boss has Lotfollah gather all the workers in front of his office. He wants to talk to them about the shutdown of the factory. All matters now to Lotfollah is to keep Sarvar unharmed, the woman he has been in love with for a long time.

director's statement

My father was a worker in an industrial factory and he became retired after thirty years of hard work. I am proud of him and since I learned filmmaking, I have always wanted to make a film about him and his honorable efforts. My film Dashte Khamoush is a tribute to my father and all hardworking workers around the globe; without their efforts human civilisation would not have achieved this level of progress.
