In my search for traces of my Iranian heritage, my trip to the West of China had become irresistible!
I decided to undertake this journey, as an “One Man Crew” filmmaker, despite many obstacles. When my external drive crashed and my only copy of my film, “Another Salute!” was lost,(Behrouz Vossoughi and Khosrow Shakibaie) I felt overwhelmed as I was one month late in preparing for the 3rd Noor Film Festival, already. I had a window of only two days to celebrate and film the Iranian New Year (Nowruz). Feelings of family obligation weighed on my mind, as it was also my wedding anniversary, and my birthday. In addition, I had no financial support–as all the organizations I thought would support me in this cultural quest, abandoned me.

As the day of my departure arrived, only three hours before my flight, I was informed that the direct buses from Teda to Beijing were not available any more. I had to get to the airport in any way possible and on time.
