2008 marks the Archive's 18th annual Celebration of Iranian Cinema, and our program
this year is as eclectic and diverse as ever. This year's offerings include seven new
features from Iran and the Diaspora, as well as compelling new documentary and short works
on film and video.

A major identifiable theme in this year's program is Iranian culture, whether it's
pop culture-including a love triangle and murder that rocked Iran in 2002 (The Red Card)
and provided steamy headlines for the Iranian tabloids for months; military culture in
Night Bus and Those Three; small town culture in Dandelions Dance in the Wind; an
irreverent and entertaining "history" of the city of Tehran in Tehran Has No More
Pomegranates!; and an ode to one of the world's most important and enduring art forms in
Persian Carpet, which features contributions by contemporary Iran's leading filmmakers,
from Bahman Ghobadi to Rakhshan Bani-Etemad.

Nevertheless, most of the works in this series are by emerging directors and the
program provides audiences with the opportunity to discover new filmmaking talent from
Iran. We also hope to welcome several guests to present and discuss their work in person.
Please check our website at for updates on in-person guests for this

All films are in Persian with English subtitles, unless otherwise noted.

Heinz Emigholz: In Person
Saturday, April 12, 7:00 & 8:45 pm

German experimental filmmaker Heinz Emigholz has earned international acclaim for
his series of artful and rigorous documentaries on architect-iconoclasts ranging from
Louis Sullivan to Bruce Goff. ous documentaries on architect-iconoclasts ranging from
Louis Sullivan to Bruce Goff. Emigholz films architectural forms to elicit their
present-tense relationship to the world that surrounds them. Over the span of projection,
his deceptively spare presentational style acquires exquisite palimpsestic resonances,
converging cinematic and architectonic space-time, the real and the imaginary.

The Archive is honored to host Emigholz in-person for companion screenings of his
two latest films on the work of modernist architects Adolf Loos and Rudolf Schindler. In
Emigholz's words, "The two films together will show how Schindler could carry out and
further develop in freedom what Loos had conceived so consistently, and the degree to
which Loos had to land in a dead end here in Europe."
