Iran director's film casts new light on homeland

Iranian director Majid Majidi wants his films to show Western audiences a different image of his homeland, saying Western media portrayals of Iran ignored the country's rich history.

Majidi, best known for his Oscar-nominated film "Children of Heaven," is back in US cinemas this month with his latest movie "Song of Sparrows," the touching story of an ostrich farmer who falls on hard times.
