Feathers of Fire tells the magical tale of star-crossed lovers Zaul and Rudabeh from the 10th-century Persian epic Shahnameh (The Book of Kings). This all-ages adventure updates the classic shadow play traditions of Asia and the Near East with breathtaking cinematic “live animation,” shadow-casting actors and puppets along with projected imagery. Featuring an original score by the acclaimed Iranian-American musical team, Loga Ramin Torkian & Azam Ali.

One of the great epics of all time...brought to life in a spectacular fashion by Hamid Rahmanian with shadow puppets design and cinematic wizardry.
— Francis Ford Coppola
