No One Knows About Persian Cats (Movie)

No One Knows About Persian Cats by Bahman Ghobadi

(2009, Iran) 35mm, 101 min. Directed by Bahman Ghobadi
Winner of the Special Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival

Bahman Ghobadi offers a glimpse of can-do determination. Faced with prohibitions against rock music, bandmates Negar and Ashkan plot to leave Iran for England to make music their way. Their deliberate progress toward this elusive goal takes them through the underground rock scene in a brisk, often comical look, at a side of Iranian life seldom seen on film.
