'Hashti Tehran is a film and discursive project initiated by filmmaker Daniel Kötter in collaboration with environmentalist Shadnaz Azizi, architect and urban designer Kaveh Rashidzadeh, urban planner Pouya Sepehr, and sociologist Amir Tehrani.

Based on the idea that Tehran itself represents a house, so to speak the inner circle of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the outskirts of the city become the space of transition between inside and outside, between urban and non-urban. Thus Hashti Tehran looks at four very different areas in the outskirts of Tehran: the mountain of Tochal in the north, the area around the artificial lake Chitgar in the West, the construction of social housing called Pardis Town in the far east, and the neighborhood Nafar Abad at the southern edges of the city. Four texts by four Iranian authors analyze and contextualize these four areas in the periphery of Tehran, while the documentary film by Daniel Kötter, by combining Road movie and architectural documentary and by inverting the techniques of inside and outside shots, portrays Tehran visually and temporally through its peripheral spaces.' — From BAZAR bookfair website
