    Bay Area - San Francisco Friday - April 18, 2008     06:00 PM

    Artist in Residency
    at The Lab
    Theory of Survival


    Taraneh Hemami
    with: Ala Ebtekar, Ali Dadgar, Termeh Yeghiazarian, Shadi Yousefian and Darvag Theater Group
    Closing event: Friday April 18th, 6-9






    Theory of Survival is a residency at the LAB with Taraneh Hemami that invites a cross generation of Iranian and Iranian-American artists to engage with an archive of posters, publications, and documents belonging to the Iranian Students Association of Northern California, active from 1960-1982. During the residency the project turns the gallery space into an evolving laboratory for exchange and collaboration, exploring the unique collection that reflects local history of Iranian immigrants in these politically critical years. The archive which includes numerous publications, theoretical discourse, original essays, translations, as well as newspapers and documents will be processed for partial contribution to the Library of Congress and the Hamid & Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies Center at Stanford at the end of the residency.


    Theory of Survival is a continuation of Hemami's CrossConnections project that engages the Iranian and Iranian-American diaspora community in an intergenerational, creative dialogue exploring issues of cultural identity, preservation, and representation.

    CHOP SHOP - A Film by Ramin Bahrani

    Seattle Friday - April 18, 2008     07:00 PM


    Northwest Film Forum presents



    CHOP SHOP

    April 18 – 24

    Daily at 7, 9pm (plus Sat-Sun at 3, 5pm)



    Ramin Bahrani, following up his auspicious debut MAN PUSH CART, sets his story of a 12-year-old Latino boy and his older sister in Willet's Point, Queens, a 20-block stretch of junkyards and chop shops (where stolen cars are dismantled for parts). Perhaps it is because Bahrani and co-author Bahareh Azimi are both foreign born that they are able to accurately render an outsider's experience with palpable compassion and realism. With no sentimentality, CHOP SHOP suggests that, for many, New York City is closer to a third world country than the glittering jewel in the "land of opportunity's" crown.



    "Miraculous! Now we have an American film with the raw power of CITY OF GOD or PIXOTE, a film that does something unexpected, and inspired, and brave." -Roger Ebert

    Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi - pre-kickoff for Ross’ re-election campaign

    Bay Area - San Francisco Friday - April 18, 2008     07:30 PM

    My Dear Friends:

    In this exciting elections year, let us come together again, rebuild and grow our network in support of one of the most talented and hardest working politicians and the first Iranian American elected to the Office in San Francisco—Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi.

    We want to build a movement in our community-one person at a time-and together participate in and change the political process.

    This kind of grass roots participation in support of a political candidate is new to our community. We started it more than three years ago under the name: Iranian Americans for Ross Mirkarimi—IAFORM---and supported Ross. We did it in less than three months and victory was sweet!

    This time, we want to move one step further and not only connect as many of us as we can but also strengthen our growing network and learn to be effective in our political activities.

    Please join us on:
