description

NAME is a documentary about the effect a given name has on personal development and how names shape the world around us. From choosing a name for your child to trying to understand why names are so easy to forget. Filmmaker Ramin Eshraghi-Yazdi has always struggled with a simple but troublesome name growing up in Canada, and now he wants to understand its affect.

Featuring Andrew Phung, Kenna Burima, James Demers, Dan Olson, Jennifer Moss and many many more!
