Persian Rug Dealers' Film

Few days ago, an Iranian film maker called me and spoke over the phone. He wanted to see me to talk about a rug film to be made by him. We fixed the time and met. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California, USC here in Los Angeles. I graduated from this fine school myself in 1982 after I got my second master's degree and my Ph.D. I love this school.

This young Persian film maker wants to make a film about the lives of the Persian rug dealers here in the U.S. He does not want to focus on Persian carpets. He had some original ideas and I provided him with some materials. He seemed pretty enthusiastic about the subject. We are supposed to meet again and talk about the matter in more detail.

Dear Dr. Sobhe,

I've been enjoying your blog and felt compelled to write to you about this young film maker's idea for a film on rug dealers.

You may have seen my film on Iran "A World Between." The subject of rug dealers in the US is near and dear to my heart, and I'd love to speak to you (and him) about this project...could you please be in touch with me about it?

Best regards,

Jason Rezaian
