    Description

    Short lecture and a debate

    "Movies that Matter" is a monthly event organized by Amnesty International Student Group Groningen (AIGS). I gave a short lecture following the film "Raving Iran" (2016; A FILM BY SUSANNE REGINA MEURES): Arash and Anoosh dream of a career as techno DJs, but this goal is virtually unattainable in Iran. So they mix at illegal rave parties and try to sell their album 'under the counter' in record shops. Their dream seems to vanish after one of them is arrested, but then an invitation to perform at a major dance festival in Switzerland opens up new perspectives.
