Musician and film maker Roxana Vilk grew up in Tehran. Her parents fled Iran in the wake of the Iranian Revolution in 1979 and since the breakdown of diplomatic relations between London and Tehran, she has been unable to return. In this film Roxana explores her identity as a British-Iranian, and finds out how to teach her children about a country they have never visited. From a tower block in Glasgow, to the glamour of Los Angeles, home to the largest group of Iranians living abroad, she finds out how other Iranian migrants keep their culture alive. While some of the questions she raises are specific to the Iranian diaspora, this film speaks to broader issues of identity faced by immigrants the world over. Produced and Directed by Harriet Shawcross. See it here.
