A nine-year-old Iranian American girl is feeling the stress of the Iran Hostage Crisis.
Narrative Short Film
Production Commencing November 2013
In America 1979, Regina, a nine-year-old Iranian American girl is feeling the stress of the Iran Hostage Crisis. A racially charged event at school leads her to act out against her older brother, making an already tense situation more complicated for her parents.
The goal of this short film is to give voice to Iranians who lived through this charged period in American history. The Hostage Crisis still informs how Americans view Iranians, and continues to inform how all Middle-Eastern people are viewed as wars and tensions persist. As the Iranian American population continues to grow it is important that we make our collective voice heard. I also hope the film will start discussions amongst Middle-Eastern about our collective identity and experience in the United States.
