TERUG NAAR IRAN / 52min
In 1979 Dirk Tieleman was one of the international journalists who accompanied Ayatollah Khomeini to Teheran. The experience of reporting the Iranian Revolution marked Dirk Tieleman’s career. 30 years later he decides to return to Iran together with the filmmaker Fabio Wuytack. The plan they have in mind is to make a documentary without official permission, exploring the daily lives of Iranian people. On their 3000 kilometer voyage they discover the many faces of Iran. An image very different from the strong fundamentalist image the mainstream media shows.
