‘Letters from America’ revolves around the saga of a father and daughter and their impressions of America, upon returning to the US after so many years. It is the testimony of a western educated Iranian intellectual who came to Iran to raise his family. After two decades he returns to America to witness the changes that have taken place since he left.
It is also the testimony of his nineteen years old daughter born in America and raised in post-revolutionary Iran, who leaves home in Tehran to go to America at sixteen. In this journey we also encounter a varied array of characters both Iranians and Americans who also provide their own reflections of what America means to them.
The film is a feature documentary shot in New York, Washington and Philadelphia on the east coast and Los Angeles, San Francisco and Arcata on the west coast of USA and Tehran Iran.
