Golestan-Parast Productions

Humanity has no borders.

At Golestan-Parast Productions, we believe that society has the power to transform its social, environmental, and economic practices just by working together. It is our passion to document members of society who have already begun work on some incredible changes to the way we live and relate to both our fellow man and mother nature. Most of the time, these people don’t even realize they are transforming the world in which they live. Golestan-Parast works with a non-profit, From The Heart Productions, to achieve the goal of spreading the word and philosophies of these remarkable and, often, tremendously humble individuals. Many of our documentaries focus on immigrants coming to America, a country which was founded on great change, and a country which continues to be a social, environmental, and economic nursery for humanity.
