FDL Movie Night: Our Summer in Tehran

By: Monday May 23, 2011 5:00 pm

Single mother, Academy Award nominated filmmaker and world traveler Justine Shapiro takes her six-year-old son Mateo to Tehran for summer vacation where they spend time with three diverse families. It’s a simple set up that is poignant and effective in showing us real and very different perspectives on the Iran and its people than those gleaned from news footage. Justine wants to meet Iranian mothers in their homes before their sons meet on the battlefields.
