    Persian Parents

    Monday - November 20, 2006     12:00 PM

    Hello to whom it may concern,

    I have started a free Yahoo support group for Persian Parents and wanted to know if perhaps you have a link section or that I may advertize on your site or if you could mention it on your site to your members. Please advise as to how I may proceed.

    Persian Parents is a group of Persian Parents primarily (but not exclusively)to meet on line. It is a venue where they have a sense of "home" to go to. This is a support group that helps families enjoy all aspects of life not just parenting. It is a community that helps with information that ranges from keeping the Persian heritage and teaching its culture to sharing any and all day to day information online. We are open minded and none judgemental. All parents are welcome! Please pass the word to your friends so our group can grow. I hope the information shared can enrich us all.

    Thank you

    Classic Syrian Cinema Film At Our Listeners' Request by Abdellatif Abdul-Hamid

    Synopsis: Tuesday in small-town Syria in 1969 means only one thing: gathering at the local bigwig's house to hear the popular radio show *At Our Listeners' Request* To a nostalgic soundtrack of classic Arabic ballads, the film's cast of oddball characters pursue their dreams and romances, but the radio brings more than they bargained for: news of the Apollo moon landing, reports of bombings on the border with Israel. And when the town's young hero is drafted, the radio's songs become more poignant still.

    Persian Short Film: Color of Friend directed and produced by Bita Shafipour

    Synopsis: Soudabeh reunites with her artistic essence and finds love again, by meeting and falling for an artist who unknowingly changes the direction of her paintings and her view on art and love. (15 mins)

    Speakers: Producer/Director Ahmad Zahra & Producer/Director Bita Shafipour

    Ahmad Zahra was born in Damascus, Syria and raised in both Syria and England. This combination of both Western and Eastern upbringing influences all aspects of his life, including his style as a Filmmaker. After acquiring a Medical Degree from Damascus University, Ahmad went on to study Film, his first passion, at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). His film experience ranges from development and production to distribution and marketing in both independent and studio pictures. After several years with 20th Century Fox, Ahmad went on to found Zahra Pictures in response to a need in the film market for media that can bridge the gap between cultures and provide accurate and balanced information especially about Islam which is still a highly misunderstood religion. Ahmad will be speaking about the film production in the Middle East and the challenges one faces when making films in and about the Middle East. He will also speak about the Syrian film At Our Listeners' Request, the history and story behind the film

    Producer/Director Bita Shafipour Iranian producer, director and writer, Bita's film "Color of Friend" has been a part of the Miami Short Film Festival and the LA ShortsFest. She will be speaking about her film Color of Friend.
