‘A World Between’ is a documentary film, completed by Jason Rezaian – Iran & USA, who is the film’s Writer/Narrator/Executive Producer.
It is the true story of a young Iranian American raised in the United States, who travels to Iran to discover his father’s homeland. Not burdened by the typical stereotypes held by Americans about Iran, he discovers a land in many ways different than expected, but one that has much more in common with us than one would think.
His encounters take him across the country, from the teeming capital of Tehran, to the center of Ancient Persia in Esfahan, and finally to the home of his ancestors Iran’s holiest city, Mashhad. In each place we meet his friends and relatives who help form a more representative view of Iranians than we often see in the West.
As the film progresses our narrator becomes more Iranian, both personally and practically, as he is forced to buy an exemption from the Iranian military to prolong his stay.
