Where can I find Iranian animation online or in Los Angeles?

I recently received a copy of the McSweeney's DVD magazine Wholphin, which features a 1975 short animated feature by Ali-Akbar Sadeghi called "Malek Khorshid." The short is absolutely stunning, and from some cursory research it appears that Iran has a fairly rich history of animation and cartooning. Where can I get my hands on some of it? Several Google searches have turned up nothing except for the names of certain animators (Noureddin Zarrinkelk, Farshid Mesghali, Morteza Momayez and others) and certain films ("Crazy, Crazy, Crazy World," "Mister Monster," "The Albino and the Phoenix," among others). I'm in Los Angeles--should I just go down to Westwood and beg from video store to video store? Is there a place online where I can rent or (long shot) torrent some of these?

Here's an index of political cartoons. (also be sure to check out their awesome music section!)

Oh! Great Pollomacho, I humbly prostrate myself before you and your magnificent gift of that Iranian music link (no intention to derail maxreax).
