    Movie Night @ The Persian Center

    Bay Area - East Bay Wednesday - April 21, 2004     07:00 PM

    ISAA Movie Night @ the Persian Center (4.21.04)

    A Free Movie Every Wednesday 2029 Durant Ave 7pm Sharp

    ISAA & The Persian Center present three new films for your viewing enjoyment.

    The directors are American, Danish, and Kurdish.

    The films are like roller-coasters, each surreal in its own way, charged with the sort of intensity and energy that makes you hold your breath for the dramatic conclusion…


    April 21: Dog Day Afternoon (directed by Sidney Lumet) Released in 1975, this movie is based on actual events. A disorganized bank robbery by a few desperate guys develops, over a few hours, into a historical event, with the media, federal officers, and rioters thrown together like one giant circus. The movie is basically in real time with essentially no music, but I dare you to notice. And if you ask me, this is Al Pacino’s best performance, at least as far as I’ve seen.

    April 28: Europa (directed by Lars von Trier)

    May 5: Marooned In Iraq (aka Gomgashtei dar Aragh directed by Bahman Ghobadi)

    The next movie is this Wednesday, April 21. Don’t tell me your studying instead. I don’t believe it.
