Trailerama: Kasi az horbehaye irani khabar nadareh (Nobody Knows About the Persian Cats)

Anvil never knew they had it so good. In Tehran, a musician can be locked up just for playing rock music. That doesn’t stop the kids from trying. Now the story of these aspiring rockers is told by Bahman Ghobadi, a Kurdish filmmaker best known for Turtles Can Fly. They face power outages, passport problems and the ever-present fear of being busted. The film is a mixture of improvisation and a script from Ghobadi’s wife Roxana Siberi. What counts is the unique spirit of rebellion it chronicles, one that recently took to the streets during Iran’s disputed elections.
