No One Knows About Persian Cats chronicles Iran's music scene
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.
