HALF MOON

Graying but determined, Mamo is a famed Kurdish musician who obtains permission to cross the Iranian border to give his first concert in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Winner of the Golden Shell, 2006 San Sebastian Film Festival. In Kurdish and Farsi. A Strand Release. | Read More

HEAD WIND

  • Release Year: 2007
  • Runtime: 65 minutes
  • Directed By: Mohammad Rasoulof
  • Country: Iran
The government of the Islamic Republic of Iran does its best to restrict its citizens' access to information and media from the rest of the world. The award-winning director of Iron Island shows how Iranians demonstrate what we'd call "Yankee resourcefulness" to stymie their censors. | Read More

INSIDE OUT

  • Release Year: 2006
  • Runtime: 39 minutes
  • Country: Iran
There are probably few places in the world where it's more difficult to be a transexual than the Islamic Republic of Iran. Inside Out follows three Iranians-a middle-aged woman, a high school drop out, and an unemployed newly wed-as they undergo their internal and external metamorphoses. | Read More

MEN AT WORK

  • Release Year: 2006
  • Runtime: 75 minutes
  • Country: Iran
This subtle and comic political allegory focuses on four middle-class guys who pile into their car for a ski weekend (already a jolt to Western expectations about Iranian movies). A brief stop at a picturesque vista leads to their chance discovery of a prominent rock formation it seems would be oh so easy to tip over, but… | Read More

NAVEL

  • Release Year: 2004
  • Runtime: 83 minutes
  • Directed By: Mohammad Shirvani
  • Country: Iran
This experimental "reality drama" depicts a few seemingly idle days in the lives of four men and a woman who share an apartment. Frank sexual dialogue, non-linear structure, and the use of symbolic images distinguish Navel from much recent Iranian cinema, while Shirvani's jittery DV camera provides a rare intimate glimpse inside contemporary Tehran society from the point of view of an Iranian-American woman. | Read More

NIGHT OF THE HUNCHBACK

  • Release Year: 1963
  • Runtime: 90 minutes
  • Country: Iran
This dark comedy, a key masterwork of Iranian cinema, has long remained unseen in the West. Adapted from a story in 1001 Nights and set in a popular theatre troupe, the story follows the death of an actor in a farcical accident and the brilliantly elaborated gags and misunderstandings that abound in subsequent attempts to dispose of his body. | Read More

PILGRIMAGE/INFIDELS

  • Release Year: 2004
  • Runtime: 92 minutes
  • Directed By: Bahman Kiarostami
  • Country: Iran
After Saddam's fall, hundreds of thousands of Iranians rushed to cross the suddenly unguarded border with Iraq to visit the holiest shrines of Shi'ism in Karbala and Najaf. Many traveled without valid papers and others did not hesitate to beg or even lie to get to these sacred sites. Playing with Infidels (Kofar). Baham Kiarostami visits the forgotten people of Iran, the Godars or Rom (gypsies) of Indian descent whose original religion was Animism and who were forced to convert to Islam after the revolution. They have four occupations: dancing, acting, hunting, and music. | Read More
