Documentary Compares Megamalls With Old Bazaar in IsfahanDocumentary Compares Megamalls With Old Bazaar in Isfahan

Isfahan Documentary House will screen today a documentary on the impact of fast spreading megamalls on the old but unique bazaar in the tourist city.
“Mashd Abbas, to Be or Not to Be,” a 40-minute film, directed by documentarian Hashem Mortazavian, will go on screen at Imam Khomeini Negarestan, a cultural center, IMNA reported on its Persian website.
The documentary was first released in 2017. Mortazavian has shot the scenes himself. The film shows how chain stores and megamalls in the ancient city and a major tourist attraction have negatively affected the local bazaar and retailers. Mashd Abbas in the title is a stereotypical name representing traditional retailers and small shop-owners.
