Synopsis: Fight Feast (بزم رزم) is about the vicissitudes story of Iranian music between 1979-1989, the years just after the revolution through the end of Iran-Iraq war. The narrative of restrictions and obstacles told by musicians, composers, and state authorities. The confrontation between music and politics. The simultaneous narration of two stories: the story of young people who sacrificed their lives for their homeland, and the story of musicians who on one hand entered the battlefields by their own language and on the other hand kept Iranian music alive and thriving.
A discussion and Q&A will follow the screening.
This event is free and open to the public. No Registration is required.
