A cosmopolite by nature, Davoud is a filmmaker, writer, and visual artist with an MFA in Documentary Media from Ryerson University. His experience with the cinematic medium spans over two decades and has taken him to the four corners of the blue planet. His feature-length documentary Iran: Voices of the Unheard made some noise at human rights film festivals on both sides of the Atlantic. He’s currently in post-production with his new feature documentary film, Age of Iron, a critique of globalization shot in several countries in Asia.

A couple in search of a non-exploitative lifestyle visit a Japanese knife-maker’s artisanal workshop in rural Japan. But does such an idyllic way of life even exist on a planet where Capitalism has gone global? Only an odyssey outside their comfort zone can answer that. An eclectic glance at a few neighbouring countries, perhaps. Or recollection of dreams long forgotten in their Age of Iron.
