    PERSIAN FILM SCREENING "Back Vocal" and "Off Beat,"

    California - Pasadena Tuesday - July 10, 2007     08:00 PM

    Mojtaba Mirtahmasb’s documentaries, "Back Vocal" and "Off Beat," capture the struggles of contemporary Iranian singers and musicians working to be heard in their own country. "Back Vocal" explores Iran’s prohibition, since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, of female solo singers. Featured singer Mamak Khadem will speak following the film. "Off Beat" documents the restrictions on rock concerts, and the efforts of fans to hold an on-line contest featuring Tehran’s underground rock bands. This will be Off Beat’s first U.S. screening! Both are subtitled in English, and will be screened under the stars in the courtyard garden. Seating provided, or bring a beach chair.

    Tuesday, July 10, 8 p.m. $6 for members, $10 for non-members. Includes museum admission.
