See the newest feature film from Iranian-British director Babak Jalali and winner of the 45th Rotterdam International Film Festival’s Tiger Award: RADIO DREAMS. A brilliant, misunderstood Iranian writer (played by the “Iranian Bob Dylan” Mohsen Namjoo) – prepares for a triumphant broadcast – a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band. Meanwhile, Hamid must juggle a dysfunctional mix of on-air talent, station managers, and performers while fending off the owner’s plans to wrest control of the station.
With gentle humor and a deadpan eye towards cultural differences, Radio Dreams brings to life the sometimes bizarre experience of immigrants pursuing dreams in the U.S. A perfect mixture of honesty, art, and socio-political topicality served up as an ingenious, offbeat transmission.
