“In Farsi, parastoo is the name of a bird. It’s always migrating and moving and always traveling. This is the fate of migrants.” - Saleh Sepas, Parastoo Theater

Thousands of miles from a crisis in their homeland, an Afghan theater director and his young protégée find solace from the relentless instability of refugee life through a growing community theater group.

Anticipated release in Summer 2023.
