Filmfarsi and the Iranian New Wave at DFI

Brick and Mirror

I must apologize for being so slow in maintaining this blog. If you're a regular reader, I'm sure you've noticed a decline in the number of posts - Farsi or English - since the beginning of 2016.

What has distracted me from posting here more often is being busy with making a documentary film on Iranian popular cinema before the revolution. For now, it's called Filmfarsi and it runs for 110 minutes.

Now, I'm glad to announce a "sneak preview" of the film at the cinematheque of Danish Film Institute on June 10, 2016 at 21:30. (Please click here. I'll provide you with more information about the film at some point in near future, when the film is properly "completed".)

I've been invited by the DFI/cinematheque people, not only for introducing Filmfarsi, but also for giving a talk on Iranian new wave cinema (11.06.16, 16:00) and introducing the screenings of spme of the classics of the 1960s and 1970s Iranian cinema during a season which is called Iran 1960-1990.


If you're in Copenhagen, please do come around as there are some essential viewings awaiting you at the cinematheque.
