Hi all!

Summer is gone but no worries, since we are approaching the best time of the year: the season of Love&Anarchy! The 30th Helsinki International Film Festival is here soon!

I picked a real gem from a quite impressive list of Protected content Tehran Taboo by Ali Soozandeh.

Here the synopsis from IMDb: "In their desperate search for freedom and happiness, four young people from Tehran, Iran are forced to break the taboos of a restrictive, islamic society."

and further:

"This striking animated first feature from Iranian-born, Germany-based Ali Soozandeh reveals Tehran’s stratified society, in which sex, drugs and corruption are concealed beneath the veil of morality and propriety." -Wendy Ide, Screen

NOTE: the director will be presenting the film / there will be a Q&A after the film!

The film is in Farsi with English subtitles.

Buy your ticket here: Protected content

and join me for this amazing film event! :-)

It´s strongly recommended to buy the ticket well in advance since these events will usually sold out rapidly.

The meeting point is Protected content The film starts at 18:45 but let´s meet before that so we may get seats next to each other (the seats are unallocated).

Drinks somewhere nearby after the film and Q&A.

See you on Sat! :-)
