Come in comfortable clothing, and take part in this informal closing ceremony.

    Celluloid Film Screening

    Bay Area - San Francisco Saturday - September 8, 2007     04:00 PM

    The Film Screening begins at 4PM and features the documentaries of two Iranian Filmmakers:

    Maryam Kashani and her warm and amusing documentary BEST IN THE WEST

    about displaced Iranian students who ended up in The Bay area back in the 1960's.

    Jahanshah Ardalan and his film BEYOND WORDS

    which is a fascinating look into the (until now) secret ways of Kurdish Sufis. Some scenes may be very graphic and disturbing to some.

    The screening will be followed by a reception open to the public with purchase of a $5 raffle ticket.>
