At the Circle Cinema – No One Knows About Persian Cats
The non-profit Circle Cinema presents “No One Knows About Persian Cats,” the fifth feature by award-winning director Bahman Ghobadi.
Shot in secret and featuring extraordinary performances by real underground bands, NO KNOWS ABOUT PERSIAN follows a pair of young musicians, recently released from prison, on a mission to take their rock band to Europe. Forbidden by the authorities to play in Iran, they plan their escape abroad with a fast-talking music promoter. Vowing to play one last show before leaving Tehran, their dangerous mission takes them on a free-wheeling journey through the City’s vibrant and diverse underground scene, home to an estimated 2,000 illegal independent bands.
“No One Knows About Persian Cats” is not rated, is 106 minutes in length, and is in Persian with English subtitles. It will open at the Circle Cinema on Friday June 4. For more information, visit circlecinema.com, or call 592-, that’s 592-3456.
