    Come join us on a mesmerizing journey deep into the heart of Iran. Shot entirely on location, this unprecedented cinematic tour reveals spiritual rites and rituals hidden for centuries. From the women's chamber of the Great Mosque, to the temple-caves in the land of Zarathustra, to the sacred dance of the Dervishes in Kurdistan, discover religious ceremonies and locations never before seen by the outside world.

    Filmmaker Aryana Farshad explains, "My documentary breaks through the stereotypes of the Islamic culture -- more than 2500 years later, in a global climate where many equate the cultures of the Middle East with fear and terrorism, Mystic Iran reveals a diverse people seeking spiritual transformation." Mystic Iran is narrated by Shohreh Aghdashloo, Iranian Academy Award Nominee for "House of Sand & Fog."

    "Mystic Iran the Unseen World" won the Audience Award at the 2008 Noor Film Festival on Sunday, April 13th, in Beverly Hills, California.
