Two students from very different Persian backgrounds begin a complicated relationship in Tehranto. Lively music, intricate textiles and vibrant colours paint the background for this unlikely story of love and family. Tehranto is a Persian-Canadian romantic comedy from first-time writer-director Faran Moradi. As explained by the film’s quirky narrator, there are two types of Iranian immigrants—those who came before and those that came after the revolution in the country. It is these cultural differences that set the stage for the very Romeo and Juliet romance between Sharon and Badi, during which they both also learn to grow as individuals.
