No Goodbye


Sajad Rajab Boloukat

A different narrative of the migration of Iranian athletes and three important cases


The documentary "No Goodbye" explores the often-overlooked issue of athlete asylum from a fresh perspective. The film examines this issue from three distinct angles, each shedding light on different aspects of the challenges athletes face when seeking asylum. The first angle focuses on Iranian athletes who choose not to compete against athletes from the Zionist regime, a decision that can have severe consequences. The second angle explores the experiences of athletes who gained so much attention that they had no choice but to seek asylum. Finally, the documentary delves into the aftermath of Iranian athletes who fled their home country. Through interviews with athletes and experts in the field, "No Goodbye" offers a compelling look at the complex issue of athlete asylum and its impact on individuals and society as a whole.
