We have been working on this film for over 4 years. We have shot footage in Boston, Bombay, Chicago, Iran, New York and Vancouver. We would like to thank all the individuals who have generously donated to this project.
This hour-long documentary focuses on the assimilation of the Zoroastrian community into North America. The film highlights the challenges faced by members of this ancient Persian religion today. By documenting the personal stories of individual Zoroastrians, we shed light on this little known but highly successful community, enabling others to appreciate the religion’s rich history and heritage.
These character-driven, stories underscore the challenges facing many immigrant groups in the 21st century and follow the assimilation process of a small group into a wider social setting.
What beliefs have the Zoroastrians doggedly held on to? What have they been forced to discard? Will the followers of the world’s oldest monotheistic religion be able to hold on to this claim 50 years from now — as their numbers rapidly decline? These are some of the central questions that this film will attempt to answer.
