  • Tehran Has No More Pomegranates!

    2007. Iran. Directed by Massoud Bakhshi. Director Massoud Bakhshi and his crew have hit a wall in their mission to make a film about their hometown, Tehran; now they must explain to their overseers at the Documentary Film Center why the film will never be completed. They decide to investigate the city's past in order to better understand the reason for their predicament. What follows is a sarcastic and comic narrative about Tehran's transformation from a small village into a bustling metropolis increasingly plagued by pollution, overcrowding, inadequate housing, and class gaps. Presented by Tanaz Eshagian, filmmaker, in collaboration with the New York Film/Video Council, and the Jan Vrijman Fund of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). This program is supported by the E Ike Eshagian Foundation. In Farsi; English subtitles. 68 min.
