Is there a second generation Iranian-American/Iranian-European "New Wave" happening?

10 years ago (1999) I did not know of - did not hear about in the media - about a single art film director who is 2nd generation Iranian-American or Iranian-European. Now I know of 4 - three well known in the art/indie/foreign film world & one who just made a very promising first feature. Here are the names & some links:

Caveh Zahedi (I Am A Sex Addict)

Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo)

Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis)

&, just entering the feature filmmaking arena:

Amir Motlagh (Whale)

So is this a new & significant development? I'd like to hear from people who know a lot about creativity in the Iranian diaspora & about art/indie/foreign films in Comments.
