Big Desires

2013
IRAN IS A COUNTRY IN WHICH MUSIC IS LIMITED TO A GREAT EXTENT. THE 1979 REVOLUTION was BAD SITUATION FOR ART AND MUSIC SOCIETY. SINCE THE FIRST YEARS AFTER THE REVOLUTION, ALL TE MUSIC ACTIVITIES WERE BANNED. POP MUSIC HAS BEEN REGARDED AGAINST LAW, AND THEN ROCK MUSIC WAS TREATED THE SAME. THE ONLY FORM OF MUSIC WHICH COULD BE MADE AND HEARD WAS TRADITIONAL MUSIC, AND REVOLUTIONARY SONGS. THE MINISTRY OF CULTURE AND ISLAMIC GUIDANCE USED TO FILTER ANY FORM OF MUSIC. THIS SITUATION LASTED TILL THE BEGINNING OF the 90’S. THE ONLY ROCK BAND IN THAT TIME WAS NAMED “KOUCH”, WHICH USED TO PRODUCE AND PUBLISH ITS MUSIC IN THE COUNTRY STYLE, IN US. IN IRAN THERE WERE A FEW BANDS WHICH MADE UNDERGROUND MUSIC, BUT THERE WAS NOT STILL GOOD SITUATION FOR ROCK MUSIC.
During late 90’s in the reform era, the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, made golden opportunities for the music society. Pop and Rock music after years of isolation, started to be produced and were progressing so fast.Rock music started to progress, but there still were many bands who worked as underground. Many concerts were held, most of which were underground, and there were also a few official ones. The Iranian youth had great interest in rock music, and many of them dreamed of being rock  stars, started to imitated the 60’s american and European rock stars.Again in the last years the limitations were grown, and rock musicians are restricted to a great extent.

Ilya is the second child of a poor family. Sociological problems with his family, and not having any funds and has made his desire of becoming a rock superstar, a distant unreachable dream.

It’s more than a decade since U.S. started the war in Afghanistan, with the message of a safe world, still the only possible path for many Afghans is to escape from their home as unofficial immigrants. Not had the situation to learn any skill in the modern world, these immigrants become workers with much less than the minimum wage in the destined countries. One of the most favored jobs which is founded by some official afghan immigrants, in Iran is gathering and separating garbage.
Among the workers one can see family men, Young boys, and kids. They work almost all hours of the day in the worst situations for human health, to send money to Afghanistan in order to make a home for livinig. The inhuman condition of work, reproduce the violence for Afghan war immigrants. Kids grow here to youth, young’s get old and the result is a small saving which is not sufficient for any kind of living.
