Zero Degree Turn

Kamran keeps sending me articles about Zero Degree Turn: the new Iranian serial about a world war 2 era love affair between an Iranian man and a French Jewish woman and how he helps her escape the Nazis with the help of Iranian diplomats. It's on YouTube now, so we can all watch it.

If you are interested, we are summarizing episodes as we watch them. Click here for the first two episodes.

Hey, I came across your blog, and noticed you wrote about Christa McAuliffe. I went there until fifth grade, and your neice has told me about you, ask her if she knows yazzy, and check out my blog

I will do that. Good luck Yazzy. I'll add your blog to my sidebar.

I thought women couldn't be shown without a headscarf in the Iranian media? I had heard that it would be blocked out, but has that changed now?

Women can be shown without a headscarf in Iran. They cannot, generally, WORK without a headscarf.

This production was filmed in Paris and Tehran. In Paris, the women could work without headscarves.

First of all, thank you so much for the links and the summaries. I just recently discovered the show and I went to the Persianhub to watch it, but unfortunately, episodes 2 & 3 aren't working.:( Therefore, are there alternative sites or places you know of where I can watch it streaming? Thanks!

yoojini, I could not get the episodes to open on a mac, but they worked on the pc. Make sure you are using the password to unlock the videos.

I don't know where else to look for them.
