Bam 6.6

A couple weeks ago the MIT Persian Student Association and the Harvard Iranian Student Association screened Bam 6.6 and it made me really really miss Iran.  The documentary is about the Bam earthquake, the destruction it wrought on Bam’s residents, and the story of an American couple traveling through Bam when the earthquake struck. Although the two were victims of the tragedy, the documentary also chronicles how despite the chaos and destruction, they were received, welcomed, and taken care of.  It is the story of human beings treating each other with humility and friendship at a time of death and scarcity of resources. See the trailer here.
