    Twenty-five years after the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the struggle for political reform is the big story. In this Wide Angle program we see behind the scenes with one of Iran's leading reformist newspapers. Founded less than a year ago and already Iran's 4th largest daily, the Shargh newspaper has quickly built a loyal readership among Iran's intellectuals, opinion makers, politicians, and the young. With such a youthful staff (the average age is 28), with more female journalists than any other paper, and committed to professional journalism and neutral reporting, Shargh is a lightning rod for censorship. Authorities have closed the paper down once already. Wide Angle documents three weeks in the life of this remarkable newspaper, following reporters out on stories ranging from Saddam Hussein's first appearance in court; to a horrific bus collision that exposes Iran's abysmal road safety record; to the trial of a professor sentenced to death for criticizing the ruling clerics; to the death of Marlon Brando. The story of these daring journalists offers powerful insight into the complexities of today's Iran.

    Movie Night

    Bay Area - East Bay Thursday - March 17, 2005     07:00 PM

    ISAA and Persian Center present:

    The latest movie made by the Iranian master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami.
    The movie is focused around ten conversations between a female driver in Tehran and the passengers she picks up. The passengers who range from a prostitute to a woman on her way to prayer, shed light on different aspects of Iranian women’s lives whose voices are seldom heard in the society.
