None of Your Business. The mystery of the Iranian guitarist
After having made several documentaries focused on the music of his country, in this film Iranian filmmaker Kamran Heidari makes a non-heterodox biography of the mythical composer Ebrahim Monsefi.
After several years living in seclusion and recording his music by himself, refusing to visit a professional studio, Monsefi composed and performed with his guitar numerous compositions that did not transcend during his lifetime.
But after his death, which occurred in mysterious circumstances, his work became known among Iranian musicians, for whom Monsefi is an icon of southern Iranian music.
