Based anthropologist Roxanne Varzi’s thirty-­three-­minute documentary Plastic Flowers Never Die (2008), about the culture of death and martyrdom during war years. Official War Documentaries In place of the suppressed oppositional documentaries a new “official documentary cinema” developed, which like the Pahlavi-­era official documentaries upheld the dominant state ideology with its specific production mode and aesthetics. Like its predecessor, this cinema was supported by various governmental and paragovernmental agencies.

It was precisely Avini’s voice-­ over narration, so passionately justifying and celebrating the ardor of war and of sacrifice, that had distinguished these films from other war documentaries, endowing them with their sacred subjectivity. Now, that narration had become a liability.
