Raving Iran (2016)
The film by German director Sussana Regine Meures was accompanied by two young Iranian DJs (Blade & Beard - Anoosh Raki and Arash Shadram) who, in their desire to express and create within the genres of electronic music, meet with uneasy and uncompromising Iranian moral, religious and political limitations. Because of the strict regime and police control, the party, modelled on the "Burning Man", is organized in the desert 1000 km away from Tehran. Their perseverance and fearlessness lead them to get an invitation to perform at the Street Parade in Zurich, where they still live and create.
In 2016, Raving Iran was broadcasting at major film festivals around the world, such as the Guanajuato International Film Festival in Mexico, the Lucerne Film Festival in Switzerland, the International Film Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland, the International Film Festival in Stockholm, Sweden, just to announce few of them.
The screening of the movie will be on 10th February at Kino Šiška starting at 8 pm. You can get your pre-sale ticket for 3€ while the ticket will rise to 5€ on the day of the event. Check out for more info HERE.
