Informed Explorer’s Benjamin Zand travels to Los Angeles, California, the home of the largest population of Iranians outside of Iran, to take a look at how Iranian-Americans have found success, wealth and a taste for American life in their new home, Tehrangeles A.K.A Westwood, California. The documentary takes a look at what the Californians think of Iranians, and finds out what Persian-Americans think of increasing tensions between their adoptive country, America, and their Iranian homeland. Written, produced, presented and edited by Benjamin Zand. Filmed by Michael Zand and co-filmed by Benjamin Zand.

    A very insightful take on the issue. It’s sadenning that we in all our Western, first world nations, haven’t learned from the past about how we treat our new arrivals. They enrich our nations so much. Perseverance means that they will always succeed.
