Absolutely wonderful.

Immigration is a new chapter in one’s life, a chapter with unexpected events that can take one’s life down paths different from the one imagined. This film is an autobiographical account of the director’s experience with immigration.

‘Scent of Geranium’ is this week’s Staff Pick Premiere! Read more about it here:

    Very nice. I recommend reading Funny in Farsi by Firoozeh Dumas. Her family moved to the U.S. in the ’70’s and, boy howdy, did they get some goofy questions.

    Oh, I’ll bet! Thanks for the recommend. I did laugh when I got to the bit in the video about “do you have apples in Iran?” It’s rather scary, how insular most people are, and don’t know much beyond their own borders, or even all that much in them. I think too many Americans never stop to think about just how much learning immigrants do, or appreciate it.

    Going to have a post up soon on the Anvār-i Suhaylī (Lights of Canopus). The artwork!
