Storyline

"IM Nowruz" (IM as in "instant message") is the story of four Iranian-American cousins struggling to assemble in Los Angeles to commemorate Nowruz, the Persian New Year celebrated at the spring equinox, and the festival of fire that precedes it. Unfortunately, physical and emotional distances among them turn the planned gathering into a great challenge. "Can technology save tradition?" is one of several questions the film addresses while examining issues faced by many first generation immigrants such as the shackles of custom, cultural alienation, technological displacement and human sexuality. Written by Amanda Roraback
