"A Cinema of Discontent”, by Iranian film maker, Jamsheed Akrami.
This documentary explores aspects of censorship in Iranian cinema. Mr. Akrami will be present and will answer any questions after the screening. Due to the 85 minutes duration of the film, we will not have a musical segment for the June meeting.
Dr. Jamsheed Akrami is a former editor of the Iranian film magazines Film and Art and Film Quarterly. He has published extensively on Iranian cinema, presented dozens of lectures, curated several film series, and produced a number of films and videos, including a trilogy of feature-length documentaries on Iranian cinema: The Lost Cinema, on political filmmaking under the Shah, Friendly Persuasion, on Iranian cinema after the 1979 revolution, and A Cinema of Discontent.
Mr. Akrami teaches film at William Paterson University and was a visiting professor of film at Columbia University, where he taught “Cinema as Cross-cultural Communication.” and “Film as Art.” for several years.
