About the film: This ethnographic film centers around folk healing practices in rural areas of Eastern Iran, mostly performed by women. Presenting some of these practices through interviews with their female practitioners, The Healer explores the environment, beliefs, gender dynamics and the ways people of the region understand and interact with human bodies.
