Dear Friends, the NOWRUZ movie is finally here. By donating below we will share the movie with you to watch .  The documentary is an 80min journey that is appropriate for all ages.  

You'll enjoy this film with your family & watch as an American comedian learns all about NOWRUZ for the very first time!  

In the documentary, I travel to 17 cities, talk to celebs/scholars/friends, & put a whole new twist on an ancient holiday celebrated by 300,000,000 worldwide.  

The movie is appropriate for all ages, all in english, and a lot of fun.  Comedy, Culture, and History collide in the award winning film... 

                             "NOWRUZ: Lost & Found"

Come along as he ditches the comforts of Hollywood to discover the meaning & traditions behind Nowruz (Persian New Year). In this new look at an ancient holiday, he's going to get a lot more than he bargained for.
