VENUE SHOWING TIME

FULL DESCRIPTION

Hamid is an eccentric Iranian writer working at a third rate radio station in San Francisco. Seeking artistic satisfaction through the esoteric programming he puts together for his small audience, he clashes with the owners of the station who seek to capitalize off his platform by hosting an on air jam session between Afghanistan s first rock band, and their idols, Metallica. A bittersweet  day in the life of film that provides an intelligent and gently humorous take on the Iranian diaspora, as well as hot-button topics such as immigration, identity and cultural assimilation. Winner of the Tiger competition at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
