The FBI Blew Up My Ice Skates

Based on true events, The FBI Blew Up My Ice Skates tells a story from the Iran Hostage Crisis in 1980 from the perspective of Haleh, an eight-year-old who just wants to enjoy her ice skates. The film raises questions about the human cost of surveillance and the criminalization of immigrant communities, linking past policy decisions with current national discussions around security and xenophobia.
