(A warm and fascinating portrait of jack-of-all-trades Naderi, who is trying to make peace between the United States and Iran by presenting a Persian carpet of peace illustrating the American presidents.)
As relations between Iran and the United States were at an all-time low, the man with the largest moustache in Tehran decided to do something about it. If Mr Naderi were allowed to present a specially made carpet showing respect for the American tradition then President Bush would understand that the Iranians are a peace-loving people. On one side, the American presidents are portrayed, the other side shows the flags of the American states. Mr Naderi never gets an appointment in Washington, however. 12 years later, Obama is the president and relations are now less reserved. Naderi sees a new opportunity. The film is a warm documentary by Behtash Sanaeeha and the Swedish-Iranian actor and director Maryam Moghaddam.– Jonas Holmberg
