On April 6th, 2018, at 7pm in the J.A. De Sève Cinema, Shahin Parhami – a MHSoC alumnus! – will present his film:
Shahrzaad’s Tale (2015, 148 min)
Shahrzaad’s Tale is a story of a lost era and a forgotten star of pre-revolutionary Iranian cinema, a tale of a working class woman who against all the odds struggled and succeeded to become an icon in the mainstream popular culture of the 1960s-70s Iran. Shahrzaad is a wandering homeless. A tale of an incredible female artist caught in three decades of political turmoil in the cultural landscape of contemporary Iran.
A Q&A with the filmmaker will follow the screening.
