An Evening of Iranian Cinema | Shaping San Francisco | City History Lectures

Join  a night of documentary shorts from Iranian filmmaker Kamran Shirdel. His reflections on the policies of the Shah’s regime—oftentimes searingly satirical—provides a broader historical and political context for the Iranian student revolutionary movement of the 60s and 70s that was ultimately global in reach.

This is part of the Incite/Insight Film Series, a collaborative production of Shaping San Francisco, New Nothing Cinema, and the Anthropology and Social Change Department at CIIS. Films are at 8 pm at 16 Sherman St. (off Folsom, between 6th and 7th in SOMA).

Bring a dish for the potluck. Bring beverages to share, as well as your ideas and comments.
