“The Tabarestanis” was supposed to be made by my friend and teacher Mr. Mohammad Reza Moghadasian. When Moghadasian were at the hospital, I asked him about the group of the Tabarestanis and why he wanted to make this film. Moghadasian talked about the friendly society of the Tabarestanis, and how they were able to prevent the closure of their enterprises and the unemployment of their workers during the boycott with the innovations in the construction of steel sections for the country’s industries and serve the economic cycle of the country. Moghadasian left us and inherited the creation of this film for me.
From the beginning, the Tabarestanis believed in the goal behind the creation of the Karestan Documentary Collection. They accepted me as a long-standing acquaintance in their compassionate society without any intention of applying their opinion during filming the movie. The Tabarestanis considered me as a person who can keep their secrets and opened every door I wanted. What surprised me more than anything else is the maintenance of their friendship and partnership for many years; it is very rare in a country with very short-lived partnerships and political and economic earthquakes. The Tabarestanis are in each others sadness and happiness like a family, and each one is a shelter for another. I do not know how much I have learned from them, but I know that I like all the Tabarestanis very much.
