In a personal quest for meaning, brilliant musician Petra Nachtmanova travels for weeks on the roads from Berlin, all the way to Iran with one question:
"Can you teach me a song
you think I should bring back home?”.
On her back, a legendary instrument opening doors and hearts: the Saz
It’s the journey of her life:
Petra Nachtmanova journeys to both the end of the world and the centre of her heart.
Saz on her back, the Berlin musician heads off in search of the origins of a string instrument tangled in myths, which found its way to her in the streets of Kreuzberg.
She travels from Berlin to Istanbul, through Anatolia, over the snowy peaks of the Caucasus and into the dusty desert of eastern Iran. She meets Bosnian instrument makers, music teachers who climb mountains in suits and chain-smoking Turkmen who possibly invented blues rock.
She has one request for each encounter:
‘Play me a song that I can take home with me’.
First she meets skeptical amazement. Then enthusiasm. And finally, deep trust.
‘Saz’ is a film about the power of music and the scope of the world, simultaneously a road movie and a quest for meaning,
a breathtaking trip in the border region between Europe and Asia,
which shows that despite conflict and crisis, there is a human everyday life out there, as well as something special that holds us together.
