    Bay Area - Peninsula Sunday - May 17, 2009     06:08 AM

    The Persian Student Association and the Hamid and Christina Moghaddam Program in Iranian Studies at Stanford University are pleased to announce a special screening of the movie "Persian Carpet" made in a multi-episode fashion by 15 prominent Iranian filmmakers. The movie has been commissioned to such highly-acclaimed directors as Abbas Kiarostami, Bahram Beizaei, Dariush Mehrjuyi, Rakhshan Banietemad, Majid Majidi... to narrate their own story of the ancient art of Persian carpet-weaving on the silver screen. The movies span such diverse genres from comedy to journalism and even to an animated segment inspired by the famous children's book "The Little Prince".

    Please join us in this unique event, the first ever screening of this movie in California.
