Bita Haidarian Nossa, has an upcoming film about her “journey around the world to answer the big questions – who am I, where do I come from, and where can a girl find a good laser hair removalist?” If the trailer is any indication this will be on my watch list although I can’t find any information for a release date.
Bita was born in America to Baha’i refugee parents from Iran. Her story tells the “tragic-comic story of her family coming to America, her childhood in Texas, trying to fit in, and competitive cheerleading – all part of the quest of a girl who knows more about MTV than Al Jazeera.” The film looks gutsy and I like that.
And Bita’s plea to public – please watch my film! If it doesn’t succeed, I’m going to have to get married.
“If she can do something to change the world maybe I can, maybe you can, maybe whoever can. It doesn’t take an Ivy League education and lots of money, it’s like, standing up for what you believe in.” – Bita Haidarian
