Film Society Celebrates The International Women’s Day. An Evening of Songs, Music, Poetry, Painting, Fact, Fiction, and Film.

 

Celebrating the International Women’s Day, Susan Khatami, Radio Program Producer and Program MC, presents Pari Amini, Painter, Mary Apick, Actor, Director, Producer, Human Rights Activist, Mahvash Azhir, singer, actress, Aryana Farshad, Filmmaker, Shahla Sarokhani, singer, Ziba Shirazi, singer and song-writer-composer, Sholeh Wolpe, poet, literary translator, and writer, as part of The Images of Iranian Women in the Arts series.

 

 
Mary Apick Winner of the Best Actress Award at Moscow International Film Festival and an activist for the Women’s Rights in Iran will be the guest speaker at the Film Society. She will present excerpts from her play Beneath The Veil which was presented at the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center. It will be presented again on March 9, 2007, in recognition of The International Women’s Day in Washington D.C. Powerful is indeed an apt description for Beneath the Veil, because what lurks beneath are stories that expose the systematic and often violent oppression of women and children in parts of the Middle East. She will recite REBORN, one of Forough Farrokhzad poems in Persian as well. Then, Sholeh Wolpe,will recite her translation of the same poem in English.
 
Pari Amini will exhibit two of her portraits of her International Women Collection (including Frough Farrokhzad) featuring her delicate and intricate form of painting that utilizes delicate shadings and variations to expertly capture the fundamental qualities of her subjects.
 
Aryana Farshad will present her short film: Age of Awakening.

Ziba Shirazi, Mahvash Azhir, (accompanied by Eric Stein, composer-pianist), and Shahla Sarokhani, (accompanied by Nader Bagha, composer-songwriter-pianist), will perform new songs from their new albums.
