Pictured is a 41x56 Iranian poster designed by Morteza Momayez to
promote the 1974 90-minute Sohrab Shahid Sales color film Still Life [tabi'at-e
bijan] with screenplay by Sohrab Shahid Sales and cinematography by
Hushang Baharlu. The film tells a melancholy tale of the forced
retirement of an elderly switchman after more than 30 years of service
at a remote railroad post, where he and his wife had been living a
quiet uneventful life. He is taken by surprise when his retirement
notice is delivered and does not understand what is happening. When
the young replacement arrives the switchman and his wife must leave the company house
where they have been living and find themselves with nowhere to go.
The film ends with the couple loading their possessions onto a donkey
cart. There is no music, only ambient sounds and voices.
