Sound and scenes from south of Iran. The story of a musician omitted from society, who inspired a generation by songs of freedom, love and pain. 

CHICHEKA LULLABY is an anthropological documentary about music. It pictures the life story of the influential musician from the south of Iran, Ebrahim Monsefi. An alternative artist trapped in a battle with society, poverty and drug addiction. Ebrahim Monsefi lived a creative life with a strong sense of humour combined with depression. Discover the tragic story of an artist who created hundreds of lyrics, recorded more than 200 songs, who died with nothing. 

Musicians of today are covering his songs but his story has never been told. The film not only archives a collection of traditional music and contemporary fusion but also opens up a window to south of Iran, showing the people's culture and lifestyle.
