It inevitably ended up being a long reflection on what’s been happening in Iran this past week. These two are brilliant.
I’m feeling a lot of love.
I love talking with them.
I love that we have the technology to do this.
I love that I’m working on this film with two other Iranian-Americans who feel similarly estranged from other Iranians for being our artist selves. Through our artistic process we’re building community and contradicting that isolation.
I love when something can be educational, political and theraputic and healing all at once.
I love when, even just for a moment, like right now, I not just accept but am proud and confident of my “artist self.”
la la la.
I think this is what people mean when they ask, “What makes your heart sing?”
