Radio Dreams by Babak Jalali, Exclusive Q&A in IRVINE with Mohsen Namjoo on 6/10 Past

June 8-15, 2017 - Irvine, CA, United States

Exclusive Q&A event with Mohsen Namjoo (Sat. 6/10, 7 pm screening)
Starring: Mohsen Namjoo, Kabul Dreams, Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Boshra Dastournezhad, Mohammad Talani, Mahmood Schricker

RADIO DREAMS, winner of the 45th Rotterdam International Film Festival’s Tiger Award, is the newest feature film from Iranian-British director Babak Jalali (FRONTIER BLUES). RADIO DREAMS creates the strange yet very real world of PARS-FM - a Farsi-language radio station broadcasting from the heart of San Francisco. The story unfolds over a single day as the station’s program manager, Hamid, a brilliant, misunderstood Iranian writer (played by the “Iranian Bob Dylan” Mohsen Namjoo) - prepares for a triumphant broadcast - a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band. Meanwhile, Hamid must juggle a dysfunctional mix of on-air talent, station managers, and performers while fending off the owner’s plans to wrest control of the station. RADIO DREAMS brings to life the sometimes bizarre experience of immigrants pursuing dreams in the U.S. A perfect mixture of honesty, art, and socio-political topicality served up as an ingenious, offbeat transmission.
