  • Where Do I Belong?

    2007. Iran. Directed by Mahvash Sheikholeslami. As a result of the Iran-Iraq war and continual strife in Afghanistan, many Iraqi and Afghani immigrants have crossed into Iran over the past thirty years. Those seeking refuge in Iran are without official status or sanction in that country, and Iranian women who marry these refugees lose their own status as citizens. Through stark interviews with such couples, the film exposes lives filled with difficult decisions about love, country, and communal acceptance. In Farsi; English subtitles. 68 min.
