    At Five in the Afternoon

    directed by Samira Makhmalbaf


    107 MINS, Color

    With sharp wit and elegant images, this film by Iran's Samira Makhmalbaf (THE APPLE) tells the story of Noqreh (Agheleh Rezaie), a contemporary woman in post-Taliban Kabul. Now allowed to attend school, Noqreh dreams of becoming the president of the republic of Afghanistan. However, her rigid father takes a dim view of the new changes in Kabul, a city he believes is rife with blasphemy. Based on a novel by the filmmaker's father, noted director Moshen Makhmalbaf, At Five in the Afternoon won the Jury Prize at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. TVPG (AC) May 12 9:00pm; 15 11:15pm; 30 9:30pm

    Iran, Veiled Appearances

    directed by Thierry Michel


    88 MINS, Color

    Appeared at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival
    Free of the restrictions that would have hindered an Iranian filmmaker, Belgian documentarian Thierry Michel visits Iran with the goal of discovering the reality behind the pervasive stereotypes that define the country in the West. Twenty-three years after the Islamic revolution, Michel finds a country of contradictions: young Iranians yearn for cultural freedom while nearby paramilitary religious sects celebrate martyrdom. Troubling and eye-opening, IRAN, VEILED APPEARANCES presents a revealing portrait of a country on the eve of transition. TVPG (AC, AL, V)
