Documentary: Cross-border Smuggling – Iran-Iraq Border

2 Mar

There are numerous documentaries that have been made on different aspects of life in Iran.

But I have not come across many which look at life outside Tehran.

The documentary below, filmed in Iran’s Kurdistan province is very interesting.

It looks at the life of a number of Iranian Kurdish fuel smugglers who risk their life to smuggle fuel across the border into Iraq, so that they can help their families financially.

Some as young as 13 have to drop out of school to smuggle fuel for a living, and die while doing their job.
