October’s selectionis the U.S. film The Iran Job. This documentary tells the story of American basketball player Kevin Sheppard’s first season playing in Iran. He finds the country brimming with generosity, acceptance, and sensuality. He forms strong friendships with three Iranian women who hold strong opinions, which they share, on everything. His season culminates in the uprising and suppression of Iran’s Green Movement – a prelude to unfolding changes across the Middle East in the wake of the Arab Spring. (English and Farsi with subtitles).
The featured short is City Bomber
