A documentary about the life of Iranian immigrants in Japan has been made by director Amir Bashti. The 60-minute film “Mehrabad-Narita” is a three-episode documentary that reviews the life of three Iranians who migrate to Japan after the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, ILNA reported on its Persian website. “I was always fascinated by the life of Iranian immigrants in Japan because they mostly came from the lower-end of the economic ladder and chose to live there for financial reasons. They were normally different from those who moved to Europe or America”, Bashti said. The film, currently in the editing phase, also briefly looks into the fate of Iranians who ended up in drug dealing and were dragged into the underworld and organized crime in Japan.
