By Indiewire | Indiewire August 4, 2006 at 8:31AM

Traverse City Film Festival attendees are getting a closer look at how Iranian people portray themselves, as headlines and talking heads dwell on tensions between leaders of that country and the United States. Director Mani Haghighi whose film "Men at Work" - about three men obsessed with trying to move a boulder for no apparent reason - is one of three offerings in the festival's "Salute to Iranian Cinema," said it's important to show the world how similar people are in different cultures. Tom Carr reports for the Traverse City Record-Eagle.
