No One Knows about Persian Cats [Movie]

This looks like a great film... showing at CIA this weekend.

NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT PERSIAN CATS

KASI AS GORBEHAYE IRANI KHABAR NADAREH

Iran, 2009, Bahman Ghobadi

Contemporary Tehran’s underground indie rock scene is the focus of the new film by the Iranian-Kurdish director known for his road movies and music films (A Time for Drunken Horses, Turtles Can Fly, Half Moon). Shot clandestinely without government consent, this defiant, eye-opening movie follows a young female singer and her musician boyfriend as they try to find potential band mates and then a way to leave Iran and tour Europe. Co-written by once-imprisoned Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi (Ghobadi’s fiancée). “An exhilarating examination of a leading Iranian criminal enterprise - music. More than 2,000 bands are said to operate clandestinely in the capital of Tehran, risking prison to play together.” –The Wall Street Journal. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 35mm. 106 min. www.ifcfilms.com/films/no-one-knows-about-persian-cats Show Times
