Video: Iranians Candid on One Wish

March 8, 2013

            Iranian graphic artist Ali Molavi asked 50 people in Tehran: “What’s your wish for today?” At first timid, they answered candidly, reflecting the passions, problems and politics in Iran today. Their wishes ranged from buying a motorcycle, being reborn, to finding a good job. One man wanted “all the inflation and high prices to go away.”  Another wished for Iran to “move towards peace and understanding with other countries." One woman did not have any wishes. “They have not left any room for us to dream anymore,” she said. Molavi's video has been viewed more than 25,000 times.
