In collaboration with its producers, Sara Nodjoumi and Till Schauder, PAAIA is bringing private screenings of the movie, The Iran Job, to some of its chapters.
The movie, already screened in Daytona Beach, FL, follows American basketball player Kevin Sheppardas after he accepts a job to play in one of the world's most feared countries: Iran. With tensions running high between Iran and the West, Kevin tries to separate sports from politics, only to find that politics is impossible to escape in Iran. Along the way he forms an unlikely alliance with three outspoken Iranian women. Thanks to these women, his apartment turns into an oasis of free speech, where they discuss everything from politics to religion to gender roles. Kevin's season in Iran culminates in something much bigger than basketball: the uprising and subsequent suppression of Iran's reformist Green Movement - a powerful prelude to the currently unfolding Arab Spring.
Private screenings have been scheduled in Orange County, CA, on June 18, Houston, TX on June 30, and Washington DC on July 8. Additional screenings are being scheduled for Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and New York City. The movie is scheduled for its theatrical release in September 2012.
