Tatami is the first feature film to be co-directed by an Iranian and an Israeli filmmaker.
We believe that art is the voice of sanity cutting through the noise. The story we decided to tell in this film is the story of too many artists and athletes who were forced to give up their dreams, sometimes forced to leave their countries and loved ones because of the conflict between systems and governments. Ultimately we hope we have made a film that will show the world that humanity and partnership always win.
May this artistic and cinematographic collaboration be a tribute to these artists and athletes, and all people who strive to look beyond the frenzy of blind hatred and mutual destruction and despite all the odds, build a future together.
