    Berkeley Lecture Series in conjunction with Taraneh Hemami’s exhibition of THEORY OF SURVIVAL

    Bay Area - San Francisco Sunday - April 20, 2008     03:00 PM

    Berkeley Lecture Series in conjunction with Taraneh Hemami’s exhibition of THEORY OF SURVIVAL

    Artist in Residency at the LAB presents:



    A gathering to view and discuss the archival material, primarily of Iranian Student movement from 1960-1982.



    This has been a very interesting exhibition of letters, documents, leaflets, pamphlets, newspapers, magazines and books gathered in one place. A unique and thought provoking collection.



    Exhibition ends on Friday April 18. However, Berkeley Lecture Series has been able to hastily organize an impromptu gathering in San Francisco on Sunday April 20 while the materials are still at the LAB.



    Date: Sunday, April 20, 2008
    Time: 3:00 P.M.
    Place: 2948 16th Street @ Capp, San Francisco



    We are hoping to have several people talk about their personal experiences. And we are looking forward to a very lively discussion.



    We particularly welcome the participation of anyone involved at that period of Iranian history.

    2948 16th Street @ Capp, San Francisco


    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 main library at Stanford University 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.

    Description
    Directed by Mohammad-Ebrahim Mo'ayyeri
    Young Davood is a headstrong lad who is being primed for a job in his small town's textile company. When the company withholds the workers' pay, the townspeople take to the streets, and ultimately attempt to start a textile business of their own. This lyrical film is a joy to watch and clearly announces Mo'ayyeri as an exciting new voice in Iranian cinema.

    Screenwriter: Mohammad-Ebrahim Mo'ayyeri. Cast: Mosa Khademian, Anahita Ghafarian. DigiBeta, 88 min.

    Public Talk with Shirin Ebadi

    Michigan Sunday - April 20, 2008     07:30 PM

    She's an Iranian lawyer, writer and teacher who took an unwavering stand to promote democracy and human rights in Iran. Especially for women and children. She distributed

    evidence implicating government officials in the murders of students. She has been jailed, disbarred, fined and receives death threats to this day. And still she speaks. Undaunted.



    Come hear what she has to say about democracy, and feel the courage of a person who actually knows the kind of sacrifice that our country's founding fathers knew.



    "Defending the Rights of Women and Children" By Shirin Ebadi

    Sunday, April 20th, 7:30PM

    WMU, Bernhard Center, Kalamazoo, MI

    $10 suggested donation ($5 for students) at door.
