About the Project

Nasta'liq is a script with a history that goes back over five centuries and is still widely used in the modern world to reflect the heart of the Persian culture and its beauty. The film "Nasta'liq—Performing Beauty" will lead the viewer on a journey of discovery, from an easy and straight-forward understanding of Nasta'liq to an increasingly complex one, as it helps audiences grasp the beauty and importance of this tradition, still very much alive today.
