Iranian film Panel - UCLA (April 12, 2008)
Panel Members: Kaveh Bahrami Moghaddam, Mehdi Boostani, Rahbar Ghanbari, Elham Hossein Zadeh (Friendís Place, Enemyís Place), Delaram Karkheirankhoozani, Soran Mardookhi (Tehran 318), Amir Shahab Razavian (Colors of Memory) and Mansour Ali Zabetian.
This was a long and tiring panel because of the translations. Audio/Video recording or still photography were not allowed at the Billy Wilder Theatre. Hence, we cannot post a detailed report on this event. For me, the best part was the informal chatts with the young directors before and after the event. The group is having the time of their lives traveling in the US and enjoying every minute of it. Their trip is a mission of goodwill promoting people to people diplomacy since there is no dipolmatic relations between the US and Iran.
