Today, more than any other time in the history of humanity, we are exposed to different cultures and belief systems. Rarely do we have a chance to get a glimpse into the mind set of a different culture through the eyes of a complete outsider. The Iran Job provides such a glimpse.
By being sensitive to the importance of personal relationships, American basketball player Kevin Sheppard gets a first-hand look at life in contemporary Iran. Through his teammates and friends in Iran, Kevin understands their values, dreams, difficulties, aspirations, and - among other things - how women in Iran cope with the cultural restrictions imposed on them. Kevin shows how respecting cultural differences can pave the road to acceptance and cooperation when for three years he lives in a country that is often perceived as anti-American. Dr. Sadigh's interview with Kevin Sheppard and Till Schauder, a graduate of the University of Television and Film in Munich and the Director/Producer/Cinematographer/Co-Editor of The Iran Job, reveals how this documentary can capture the psychological, social, and political pulse of a culture and bring crucial awareness to millions of outsiders.
