Sometimes I Dream in Farsi
Some films are made to help you remember.
In 1985, I was refused a haircut because I was Iranian. My father, who was with me at the time, protested by conducting a sit-in, which resulted in a police escort off the premises. Since I was only nine years old, I have blocked this memory until now.
Through therapy and the film’s re-enactments, I hope to heal this old wound and create a dialogue to help audiences reflect on how discrimination affects children and form better ways to communicate and address all those who might be involved in such an event.
If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation to the film, hosting a public screening, or having me visit your school, church, synagogue, temple, or community, please visit our contacts page.
