Zorastrians Today

This hour-long documentary will focus on the assimilation of the Zoroastrian community into North America. The film will highlight the … all >> challenges faced by members of this ancient Persian religion today. By documenting the personal stories of individual Zoroastrians, we will shed light on this little known but highly successful community, enabling others to appreciate the religion’s rich history and heritage.

These personal, character-driven, stories will underscore the challenges facing many immigrant groups in the 21st century and will follow the assimilation process of a small group into a wider social setting.

What beliefs have the Zoroastrians doggedly held on to? What have they been forced to discard? Will the followers of the world’s oldest monotheistic religion be able to hold on to this claim 50 years from now – as their numbers rapidly decline?

These are some of the central questions that this film will attempt to answer.

    This is Rahul Chandran writing from Doha-Qatar, in the Middle East. I must say that this is quiet am initiative, considering that most Parsis prefer to document relevant themes on paper; you’ve decided to do otherwise!

    I am interested in the Parsis and their culture, especially about how modern-day followers of the religion ( Indians per se ) reconcile with others based in Iran. Has there ever been dialogue between followers in Iran ( considering that many are born-again converts ) and those in India ?

    Keep up the good work!
