    Bahman Ghobadi's "Half Moon" at Pacific Film Archive

    Bay Area - East Bay Saturday - October 20, 2007     06:30 PM

    SATURDAY OCTOBER 20 at 6:30

    Half Moon

    East Bay Premiere!

    Bahram Ghobadi (Iran/Iraq/Austria/France, 2006, 107 mins)

    The Kurdish people know no national borders, so it is with full hearts-also with laptop, cell phone, and rooster-that a dozen Kurdish musicians, all sons of widely revered elder Mamo, attempt the trip from Iranian to Iraqi Kurdistan to perform, now that Saddam is gone. Here, everything lyrical is also practical-a de Chirico landscape reveals itself to be a simple graveyard-everything transcendent rooted on earth: the heart-stopping "celestial voice" of scores of women singing as one reveals the existence of some 1300 female singers exiled by the 1979 revolution. There is no separation between the artistic and the political, the magical and the musical on this marvelous, fraught journey.

    The Pacific Film Archive Theater is located at 2575 Bancroft Way (between Telegraph and Bowditch) in Berkeley, CA. Advance tickets are available by calling (510) 642-5249 or visiting

    Al-Ferqa Al-Qawmyyah:

    The Egyptian Folkloric

    Dance Troupe

    A Brooklyn Premiere!

    For the first time in New York, here is a chance to experience the intoxicating beauty of Egyptian/Arabian culture through the long history of the Raqs Sharqi -- the colorful and exotic folkdances of Ancient Egypt as passed down through eons of generations. These dances arose from Upper Egypt, Cairo and Alexandria and were an integral part of both ancient religious ceremony as well as secular celebration; these dance forms were danced in local towns and villages where men, women and children all knew the colorful baladi or saiidi movements.

    Don't miss this chance to see a whirlwind of pageantry and celebration as you are drawn into the midst of what would have been seen in the Temples, at weddings, street fairs and festivals -- wherever the people celebrated life.
