[ video ] H/T to Max Fisher, foreign policy blogger at the Washington Post, for featuring this charming video in his post today. Shot by Chicago filmmaker Cyrus Dowlatshahi, "it shows a side of Iran apart from the country's autocratic leadership and its provocative foreign policy: regular Iranian life," he writes in the run up to Monday's U.S. presidential debates to center on foreign policy. "It offers a brief, warm tour of a less-seen side of Iran. It's not debate prep, exactly, but maybe consider it a debate supplement."
