In 2004 filmmaker Taghi Amirani gained unprecedented access to Shargh, at the time Iran's leading reformist newspaper. With full official permits from all the relevant Iranian authorities he went behind the scenes with the paper's young journalists as they went about their job of reporting and commenting on a wide range of social, cultural and political stories. Amirani's camera follows the journalists on assignments and at home as they offer rare insights not just about journalism but also about post revolutionary Iranian society. Made in the final year of President Khatami's second term in office, RED LINES AND DEADLINES is a film made by an Iranian with Iranians that tries to stay clear of cliches about Iran presented in western media.
Every last Tuesday of every month, Docunight will screen a documentary about, around, in, made by Iran or Iranians. The screenings will take place on the same night across several cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, London, and Dubai (the list of locations is growing). Docunight films will be diverse in subject and will run the gamut. All films will have English subtitles.
