Made in Iran is about the touching and emotional trip of the Iranian street artists Icy (1985) and Sot (1991). In Iran, the two brothers risked their life and freedom to create murals commenting on problems and worries of the Iranian people. While having been arrested several times in Iran, Icy & Sot get invited to exhibit their work in a solo show in NYC. A unique chance, but one that comes with a big risk: a one-way ticket to NYC. There’s no way back.

Director Charlotte Scott-Wilson, CTM Docs, and Mindshakes present the online release of Made in Iran; a short documentary about the exciting road trip of the Iranian street artists Icy & Sot, in co-production with OAK Motion Pictures and Radio Zamaneh. The art of the so-called Banksy’s of Iran touches on subjects like human rights and the socio-political problems of Iran. Currently, they’re working on an international career in New York City. An irreversible choice that means that they’ll never be able to visit their family and friends in Iran again.
