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.
