300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn
FREE; no RSVP necessary
Bidoun and Cabinet co-present a screening of the film version of Bijan Mofid’s lauded 1967 avant-garde play Shahr-e Gheseh (City of Tales). Set in a mythical city populated by various animals, Shahr-e Gheseh is an allegorical fable in which the fate of a visiting elephant strangely echoes the fate of Iran under the modernity espoused by its rulers in the twentieth century.
Program in Farsi (film has NO SUBTITLES; discussion following also in Farsi)
Ab-Dough-Khiar and other refreshments will be provided.
