    ZANAN Lecture: Project Americas

    Bay Area - South Bay Sunday - December 17, 2006     01:30 PM

    Salaam Bar Hamegy,
    It is with great pleasure to announce our dear guest for December meeting; Golbon Eghtedari. Golbon who was born in Tehran, has spent most of her life on the west coast and is a 2002 graduate from Lincoln High School in Portland Oregon. In 2004 an apartment fire sent her to South America to "find herself", but she found much more than that. Witnessing first hand the dark reality of poverty and hunger in the eyes of abandoned and ignored kids roaming the streets, she knew there was something to be done; PROJECT AMERICAS!

    "Golbon has put her heart and soul into developing “Project Americas”. She has decided to raise the awareness of the people in this country about some of the choices that the US government is making on the world stage, while, at the same time, help some of the street children in South America. During year 2005 Golbon worked hard and created and sold her artwork to get started on this project."

    Project Americas phase : 1 (BRAZIL)

    Golbon just returned from Brazil few months ago. She will share stories, photos and clips from her film in progress and her seven month journey. She explores the cultural/economical /geographical differences between Salvador (Bahia) and Rio de Janeiro, while observing their cycles of social interaction that produce the reality of street kids by the masses.

    It is very refreshing to see the young Iranian generation thinking and acting globally. This meeting will be in English and open to everyone.

    Shiva Rose in DAVID & LAYLA at Berlin Kurdish Film Festival

    Europe - Germany Sunday - December 17, 2006     06:00 PM

    18 Official Selections, 4 Wins.

    Shiva Rose, the first Persian American actress in a lead role in an English-speaking feature, just won "Best Breakthrough Performance Award- see IMDB and Iranian of The Day at

    "Shiva Rose (as Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." VARIETY.

    Director, who won 'Spirit of Independent Award', will introduce the film.

    DAVID & LAYLA is making a Guiness Book of Records by being Official Selections not only at regular film fests but also at 'Conflict Resolution' and 'Human Rights' fests, as well as at 'Love' and 'Romantic' film fests!

    From an impossible romance, a hope (a fantasy!) for peace: David & Layla- a Jewish Muslim Politcal Romantic Comedy. Set in New York, inspired by a true story.

    "This new comedy about young loves and the large ethnic families (on both sides) that stand between them could have been just another My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but its originality and insight set it apart. This outright charmer by Jay Jonroy has the potential of being a broad crowd-pleaser, along the lines of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Only David and Layla is a superior variation on that film, with unexpected insights…” Joe Baltake.
