These two following IMDB entries both refer to the same film by Abbas Kiarostami. The original -Farsi- title of the film is Dandan-dard (meaning Toothache) and it's alternative title is Behdasht-e dandan. The film is produced in 1980 and over following years was aired multiple times on Iranian national TV.

Also this title (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4028632/reference) is the same as https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0830889/reference which is Kiarostami's only documentary about Persian carpets/rugs. It was included in an anthology film called Persian Carpet which is also listed on IMDB (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9042288/reference). The original/Farsi title of the film is "Kojast rah-e residan" which can be translated as "Is there a place to approach?". Kiarostami has no other film in his entire filmography called Rug. Also the running time of the film is only 6 minutes (and not 32 minutes)
