* Interest in "Maryam" in Toronto

Around a year ago, the Iranian film "Maryam", directed by Ramin Serry, was produced in the U.S. The movie fascinated the Iranian audience as well as the general public and received excellent comments by movie critics like Roger Ebert, who called it "an extraordinary film." (See interview in iranian.com)

"Maryam" has now been sent to the Toronto International Film Festival to be reviewed for screening at the forthcoming festival in September. Since festival organizers take into consideration the degree of the interest the public shows in the film, a group of Iranian community members in Toronto has prepared a petition like letter to the Toronto International Film Festival, to indicate their interest in seeing Maryam and make sure the organizers screen the film.

Those interested to support the movie by adding their names please email full name and phone number to abbasatrvash@yahoo.com, during the week ending June 29, or if you like you may ask for a copy of the letter to be emailed to you.

* Himalayan expedition

Hello Everyone,

I am organizing a trek-expedition to the Himalaya section in Pakistan that will take us as far as K2 Base Camp with views of K2 (8616 m), Broad Peak (8048 m), Gasherbrum 1 to 6 and the entire upper Baltro Massif in the Himalayas...

This trek will require a good level of physical fitness and preparation to reach above 17,000' elevation. This trip is organized to depart USA about July 25-26 and return to the US about August 19-21.

The cost of the trip -- excluding the airfare to Pakistan -- will be about $1800-$2200 depending on the number of people in the team. There are only 8 spaces available at this point. If you are interested to join and have any questions, please drop me a note for more details...

* Documentary: Iranian in U.S.

We are in the middle of producing a one-hour documentary about the Iranian community in the United States. We're looking for families with interesting life stories. Ideally, we would like an entire family, (father, mother, two or three children in different age groups and genders) who have the following characteristics:

* left Iran after the revolution

* had a hard time getting out

* found adjusting to their new homeland both attractive and challenging

* the parents feel their children are becoming quite American

* are currently living in Los Angeles or New York

* are Bahai, Muslim, Zoroastrian, or Armenian

* are interesting and compelling people

The chosen families would talk with us on camera in their homes for a couple of hours and we would also shoot them in larger social settings.

This is potentially a documentary for PBS, National Broadcast. It's a great opportunity for our community to create dialogue amongst ourselves while becoming visible to a larger American audience.

You can email nodjoumi@hotmail.com if you know anyone or are interested in participating. Please feel free to pass this email to other Iranians.

Have a wonderful day!

Tanaz Eshaghian and Sara Nodjoumi

* Bird's Iran book reading, West coast

U.S. WEST COAST READINGS Christiane Bird will be reading from her new book, Neither East Nor West: One Woman's Journey Through the Islamic Republic of Iran (description of book and blurbs from reviewers below. Also see excerpt in iranian.com), on the following dates: San Francisco/East Bay area Sat., July 7, reading at Book Passages, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte

Madera, 5:30 p.m. Tues, July 10, reading at Black Oak Books, 1491 Shattuck, Berkeley, 7:30 p.m.

Los Angeles Thurs., July 12, reading at Borders Books, 1360 Westwood Blvd.,Westwood, 7:30 p.m.

Seattle Sun., July 15, reading at University Bookstore, 4326 University Way NE, 2 p.m.

Brief description of the book:

Neither East Nor West: One Woman's Journey Through the Islamic Republic of Iran offers a fusion of eloquent travelogue, historical inquiry, unforgettable portraits of people, and interviews with Iranians from all walks of life. As a child, Bird spent three years in Tabriz, an ancient city in northwestern Iran, where her father, a doctor, had volunteered his services. As an adult, she found it difficult to accept the relentlessly negative news reports surrounding a country for which she had distant but fond memories. And so, in the fall of 1998, she returned to Iran to travel--alone and mostly by bus--everywhere from the modern bustling capital of Tehran to the holy medieval city of Qom, from the sacred pilgrimage site of Mashhad to the haunting, isolated Valley of the Assassins. This book is the result of that journey.

Blurbs from the reviewers: "A vigorously varied panorama....The splendid product of a generous heart and a watchful eye..." New York Times

"A thoughtful and eloquent excursion....Bird is a marvelously inventive writer who sweeps us along on her lyrical magic carpet ride." Chicago Tribune

"Mesmerizing....Bird never fails to captivate readers.'' Rocky Mountain News

"Bird's openness and intellectual curiosity, her refusal to be buffered from the country by the use of interpreters and drivers...add a refreshing dimension to her observations.'' St. Petersburg Times

* Roundtable: Elections & US-Iran ties

The American Iranian Council (AIC) is pleased to announce its next Congressional Roundtable on "The Iranian Presidential Elections and Its Implications for US-Iran Relations", co-sponsored by Representative Bob Ney (R-Ohio).

The speakers will include Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) and Representative Bob Ney (R-Ohio), as well as Iranian policy experts. The next few months will be crucial for the future of US-Iran relations.

The impact of the next presidential elections in Iran (June 8) on Iran's policy toward the US is uncertain. Meanwhile, the Bush Administration is reviewing its Iran policy and, in the next few weeks, Congress must decide whether to renew the Iran Libya Sanctions Act or let it lapse. Needless to say, this will be an appropriate time to analyze the future of US-Iran relations in the wake of the above developments.

This meeting is the third in a series of roundtables on US-Iran relations designed to promote an exchange of ideas among interested and informed members of the American, Iranian, and Iranian-American communities.

Date and time: June 27, 2001, 8:30 a.m. ­ 12:00 noon
Location: 1309 Longworth House Office Building, Washington, DC
Attendance is free but through registration only.
Registration and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m.

Due to limited number of seats, please register by June 22 via fax: (609) 252-9698 or 9565; or email: aic@american-iranian.org

* "Sneaker" in New York film fest

Human Rights Watch International Film Festival presents THE GIRL IN THE SNEAKERS (NY Premiere)

Rassul Sadr Ameli, Iran, 999 - 110m drama In Farsi with English subtitles

Suggesting an Iranian spin on Romeo and Juliet, but with the notion of tragic, unconditional love replaced by world-weariness and cynicism, director Rassul Sadr Ameli's THE GIRL IN THE SNEAKERS makes for a highly enjoyable addition to the burgeoning canon of exciting new films from the Middle East.

The film opens with a teenage couple--Aideen and Tadai--strolling through a Tehran park. Though they have met just that afternoon, the two begin to daydream about a life together. Their teenage wooing stroll is abruptly interrupted when a police officer arrests Aideen on suspicion that he has deflowered Tadai. That Tadai should even be seen in a public place, with a young man her own age to whom she is not related, outrages her parents. Aideen and Tadai are forbidden to see each other.

Distraught and dejected, Tadai quickly decides that she cannot live without seeing Aideen once more. She runs away from home, setting off on a 24-hour journey through Tehran while she waits to be reunited with her love. http://www.hrw.org/iff/ny/girl.html

Saturday, June 16th at 3:15pm; Monday, June 18th at 1:00pm; Wednesday, June 20th at 9:00pm

TEEN LAUNCHES WEB COMMERCIALS ON JOB BOARD

Press release

(Alexandria, VA - June 5, 2001) Juniorjobs.com, a job hunting site for teens, introduces "job clips" an innovative recruiting technique for teen jobs on the world-wide web. The web commercials are the creation of the 17 year old Founder of juniorjobs.com Saied Ghaffari.

According to the Washington Business Journal, "Ghaffari's venture into Web commercials illustrates how a technology that is increasingly cheap and user-friendly enables teen-agers and others without much formal training to play alongside the professionals in the Internet media world."

Ghaffari creates the "job clips" on his Apple titanium laptop using Apple iMovie2 software. The :30 second commercials feature employers with job openings for teens talking about why teens should work for them. The web commercials are " informal and fun" says Ghaffari and "allow teens to get a real sense of who their potential employers are and get an idea about the work environment." >>> DETAILS
