Back when things were very different.
Mansour Mortezaee hasn’t got anything to do with Mexico as far as I know, but he’s certainly felt the impact of the boundaries his birthplace has put on him. Exiled from Iran in 1978, Mansour has had a successful career as a classical musician and teacher in the U.K., but he described the experience of being separated from his land as ‘very painful’ and the reality of not being part of Iran as ‘very difficult’. He was still making the U.K. his home after all this time.
