Tehran: City of Love (Followed by Q&A)
Date: Sat 7 Mar 2020
Ali Jaberansari • Iran 2019 • 102m • 12A • Persian with English subtitles
Three disenchanted characters: an ex-champion body-builder, an overweight beauty clinic secretary and a dispirited religious singer, yearn for love and connection in Tehran. This is hard enough in any big city – never mind in Tehran, where individual freedoms can’t be taken for granted.
Q&A: In Conversation with Ali Jaberansari and Dr Nacim Pak-Shiraz
Born in Tehran, Iran in 1981, Ali Jaberansari moved to Canada and then returned to Iran to attend Abbas Kiarostami’s filmmaking workshops in Tehran where he decided to pursue his real passion for making films. His resolve was strengthened when he was accepted into the MA Filmmaking programme at the London Film School.
