This semester I decided to attend the documentary film screening of From Isfahan to Irvine on impulse. I largely went on impulse because I was dragged by my cousin and friends. Isfahan to Irvine tells the tale of Hossein Omoumi as he learned and mastered Persian music. The documentary was extremely interesting. I was inspired through Hossein’s sheer devotion for music as he strived through his obstacles. Hossein essentially used his experiences and identity to drive him to accomplish his goals. Overall, the film was extremely enriching and made my Saturday night worthwhile.
