Description:
  Historians believe, one of the most tragic events in America's History of racial discrimination is 'Tulsa' killing in 1921. More than 300 Blacks were killed and 126 houses were destroyed...

Tulsa is the first film in Iran with the theme of racism, especially about black people. Everywhere people may have a kind of racism in them. For example, In Iran, people do behave differently (not respectful) toward Afghan People.

This film would like to make more awareness about all kind of racism.

-------
Director Statement:

The absence of dialogue seems to be a metaphor of both the unspeakable nature of the killings, and of the silence which continues to reign over many episodes of racial injustice in the US history.

Tulsa will hopefully contribute to the much-needed action, not just dialogue, in teaching history and coming to terms with it.

Screening with: Our New President
