Social injustice. I've witnessed bigotry and intolerance for most of my life in various settings.. I've lived in 19 cities and travelled most of the world. The most recent case was the most appalling. I shot a thesis film while at the University of Southern California that involved my home country of Iran. The school halted my production then harassed and threatened me and eventually terminated me. They who would not allow me to complete the film and did not award me a degree despite my having completed twice the course load with a 3.8 GPA. I am determined to complete this film as a testament to anyone who has faced discrimination and harassment from a major corporation or entity. I also want to help other people who may face discrimination in academic environments.
I like to tell stories through the written word or the moving picture.
