Abstract:

No study of the Iranian capital has ever demonstrated more energy or depth of feeling than this street-level journey by BBC journalist Rageh Omaar. With astonishing access to everyday citizens as well as public figures-at one point Omaar is invited to pray next to Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad-the film reveals a nation full of anomalies and bizarre contradictions, beards and burqas set against BMW showrooms and mobile phone ads. A through-line that stitches the program's events together is Omaar's attempt to write and publish an article for an Iranian youth magazine. As he navigates the minefield of Iranian censorship, he discovers heartache, humor, and unending surprises. Animated maps also help to transport viewers into the city's midst.
