Can stories connect people thousands of miles apart? Can they bridge gaps that stretch across decades? The Tehran-DC Media Project hopes to find out, by following the lives of ordinary citizens in two politically charged capital cities: Tehran and Washington D.C. The core of the project will be a series of three-minute narratives. Each video will follow a single person as they go about the day in their capital city. These stories will be presented in pairs, matching a Tehran character with their D.C. counterpart. Our new website is due to be launched in Spring 2016.
