Iran: Is it Really that Bad!? Episode 1 & 2
For most people in the West, Iran is a country associated with terrorism, violence, and societal repression. Dutch Filmmaker Reinier van Oorsouw travels there with the simple question: Is Iran really that bad? From parties deep in the desert to professional women working as creatives, we find a modern and nuanced society far different from what’s typically portrayed in the media.
Filmmaker Reinier van Oorsouw continues his journey of connecting with local Iranian people and showing a side of the country you don’t see in the news. Heading south from Tehran to Esfahan, he smokes shisha with female college students and gets some surprising answers about their views on marriage.
