In his film My Mother – the History of Iran, Shahram Entekhabi personalizes the narration of history in bringing together his mother's story with observations that he feels compelled to pass on. He aims to create an alternative narrative deviating from the mainstream historiography, portraying history as a malleable and subjective concept
