We'll let you know when this movie is showing again in London.

Janbal is inspired by an ancient Hormuz Island myth, in which people sacrifice clothes of the deceased to the sea so that the goddess Sea-Mother will cleanse their souls. The film takes stories told by the island’s dwellers as its starting point, and playfully finds its form from there.

Musa is enchanted by the sounds of the sea. He collects clothes from its shore to create pictorial visions of the Sea-Daughter; he writes stories; he plays the jahleh (clay pot) to keep alive the sound of her voice.
