Theme: I Call Myself Persian
"I Call Myself Persian" is filmmaker Tanaz Eshagian's documentary
about the difficulties and stereotypes of being an Iranian in
America. It's a film that explores the Iranian revolution of
the late 1970's and the staggering exodus of its people to the
U.S. The film shows how the Iranian-American community has had
to overcome being scapegoats for anti-U.S. sentiments and activities
in Iran since the Hostage Crisis in 1979.
