HIC + Doc’n Roll Film Fest: RAVING IRAN
May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Hull Independent Cinema and Doc’Roll Film Festival present: RAVING IRAN
Sue Mueres | 2016 | Switzerland | Unrated (18+ only) | 84 mins | Persian and Swiss German with English subtitles
At Hull Truck Theatre
HIC is delighted to be hosting Doc’Roll Film Festival, the UK’s celebration of music documentaries, for a second year. Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.
Anoosh and Arash are at the centre of Tehran’s underground techno scene. Tired of hiding from the police and their stagnating career, they organise one last manic techno rave in the desert, under dangerous circumstances. Back in Tehran they try their luck selling their illegally manufactured album. When Anoosh is arrested, there seems to be no hope left. But then they receive a phone call from the biggest techno festival in the world. Arriving in Switzerland, they are overwhelmed by the realisation of their own dream. The response from radio and newspaper interviews and the acclaim of millions of ravers and other DJs catapult them into another sphere.
Hull Truck is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts.
