    Iranian Film: Bashu, the Little Stranger (Bashu, Gharibeye Koochak) by Bahram Beizai. 1989

    New York Wednesday - January 31, 2007     06:30 PM

    Hailed as one of the masterpieces of post-revolutionary Iranian cinema, Bashu, the Little Stranger opens during an Iraqi air-raid on a small Iranian village bordering the war-front in Khuzestan. When 10-year old Bashu’s loses his home and his entire family in the raid he takes refuge in a truck that unexpectedly drives north, close to the Russian border. There he is assumed to be ‘wild’ because of his incomprehensible dialect and dark skin; only Nai, a mother of two whose husband is away for work, takes pity on him. Soon she and Bashu weave a relationship strong enough that Bashu’s traumatic experience with the war makes way for hope and trust. In Persian, Arabic and Gilaki w/English subtitles.

    Film: The Legend of Love (Cherikeye Hooram)by Farhad Mehranfar. Iran, 2000

    New York Wednesday - January 31, 2007     09:00 PM

    Set among the high cliffs of western Iran in the heart of Kurdistan, The Legend of Love tells the story of Khazar, a female doctor who sets out on a journey searching for Hooram, the man she loves. Once a medical student, Hooram has quit school to work at a clinic for the victims of the Iran-Iraq war. Khazar carries with her a tape recording he made explaining his departure. When she plays it, he appears in front of her. The journey takes her through magical rituals and myths of Kurdish culture, among them the Kurdish "legend of love" which gives the film its title. The result is a remarkably rich portrait of Kurdish history and culture set in spectacular landscapes. Above all it confronts the problem of Kurdish isolation and marginalization . In Persian w/English subtitles.
