Iranian Film Festival: "Radio Dreams"

  • National Gallery of Art 6th & Constitution Ave NW Washington, DC (map)

Mohsen Namjoo, a folk singer known as “Iran’s Bob Dylan,” delivers a brilliantly deadpan performance in this comedy as Hamid Royani, the put-upon program director of a Bay Area Persian-language radio station. A famous writer in exile, Royani is eternally exasperated with the station’s mix of provincial programming and inane advertising jingles. It looks like he’s managed a coup when Metallica agrees to jam on air with the Afghan rock band Kabul Dreams (playing themselves). But as the famed rockers’ appearance suffers delay after delay, tensions boil over in hilarious fashion.

Part of The 21st Annual Iranian Film Festival.
