In this deeply personal film, Persian-American filmmaker Golestan-Parast explores how wrestling can bring the American and Iranian people together.

Through the director’s own experience returning to his home country after many years in the USA and by telling the personal stories of athletes wrestling abroad, Iranian women barred from the sport, and a wrestling hero fighting for the people – the film tells a complex, nuanced and vital story for this moment in time.

“Wrestling with Iran’ is a defiant message of hope, an emotional homecoming, and a love letter to a people.
