Australian filmmaker Kapitan Vee spent 2 and a half years living in Iran. When he arrived in July 2009 he was apprehensive. Images of the bloody put-down of post-election protests in June 2009 had been shown around the world. Would it be safe? Could he make his documentary? He did not want to make a film dwelling on politics and religion. He wanted to get beyond that - the Persian psyche. As a foreigner in Iran, meeting people was easy and he soon found many willing souls keen to tell their story, however many others were not, too afraid of the repercussions from the government if they said something out of line. Kapitan Vee had a wild ride through Iran and this is - Pulp Farsi.
