Directed by Davood Ashrafi
The “Boulevard Keshavarz” in the heart of Tehran has been a symbol of modernisation in Iran since the 1940s. After Queen Elizabeth’s trip to Iran, first called “Elizabeth Boulevard”, it appears as an urban resort in numerous films, songs and texts. Ashrafi’s film follows the history, events and narratives of the Boulevard and portrays it as a collective place of longing.
Followed by a conversation with the filmmaker!
