Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hostility between Iran and the U.S. had died down enough in the 1980s to allow the Iranian film industry to make headway in American theatres. The year 1986 was a particularly busy one, with nearly a dozen Iranian films attaining U.S. distribution. One of these was Telephone Calls, produced by the Center for the Propagation of Islamic Thoughts and Arts. Mohammad Kassebi and Reza Cheraghi headed the cast of this propagandistic drama. Details are sketchy concerning the plotline: evidently, a telephone becomes a conduit for religious enlightenment.
