    ISAA and Persian Center present:
    "Noon o Goldoon" a.k.a. "A Moment of Innocence"
    by Mohsen Makhmalbaf

    This is based on the true life story of Makhmalbaf, the filmmaker,himself. In 1974, when he was a 17-year-old rebel protesting theShah's regime, he stabbed and seriously injured a young policeman,Tayebi, while trying to steal his gun and ended up serving six yearsin prison for the crime. Releasd after the Islamic revolution hebecame a filmmaker. In 1994, while he was looking for nonprofessionalactors to play in his movie "Salam Cinema," Tayebi shows up and wants
    to audition for becoming an actor.

    "Noon o Goldoon," made in 1996, finds makhmalbaf and Tayebi playingthemsleves in a movie in which the director seeks to reconstruct theevents of 1974 that changed both their lives. Much of the filmrevloves around the choosing and coaching of young actors to portraytheir younger selves. As the lessons proceed and the moments leadingto the stabbing are rehearesed, the director and the man he woundedturn out to have sharply differing visions of what took place.

    When: Thursday, Nov. 11th @ 7:00PM
    Location: Persian Center (2029 Durant Ave., near Shattuck Ave.)
