    • Synopsis
    • With this film I wanted to show the present day version of what was Tehran in the 70s, when the American lifestyle and urbanism was projected onto the Iranian capital. Using Los Angeles as a set for this fictional city, I wanted to integrate its function as the default set of hollywood films, and the default city for iranian migrants.
