Two screenings of Iranian filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi’s excellent new film about the underground Tehran music scene. This mockumentary follows two youngsters’ attempts to form a band and stay one step ahead of the authorities. Gifted filmmaker Ghobadi, whose previous films include the remarkable A Time for Drunken Horses and Turtles Can Fly has made a film that is rough, ready, vital and full of passion, plus the music is fantastic. A wider Scottish release for this film will hopefully be secured soon.
Cameo, Edinburgh on Mon 5 & Wed 7 Apr.
