‘My dream goes all the way to Iran’ tells the intimate stories of six Iranian-Canadians as they share the most painful and beautiful moments of their journeys from Iran to Canada. Central to this documentary are their memories, emotions and archival footage of that gives us a glimpse of the past. A past they had to leave behind due to turmoil. They share the challenges they overcame to create new lives in a new country. This piece is a powerful portrait of the Iranian expatriate, an immigrant population that is often misunderstood and misrepresented. But it’s also a universal story of what refugees and immigrants face, uprooting their lives for a hopeful future.
