This article explores the symbolism in the film A Dragon Arrives! and highlights the significance of archival elements in shaping alternative historical narratives and promoting false beliefs. The supernatural aspects of the film, including Jinn, Zār, psychedelics, and talismanic magic, are examined. The article also explores how Ejhdeha (Dragon) in Haghighi’s film represents the “political unconscious,” as conceptualized by Fredric Jameson, reflecting and perpetuating the dominant ideologies and power structures of any society.
