Un blues per a Teheran

Javier Tolentino

Especials Spain 80 min Catalan premiere Documentary


Iran is presented as a country with many different faces where tradition and modernity coexist and come face to face. Through music and its peoples, our main character, Erfan, guides us to discover an unknown but sophisticated country. He is an amusing and ironic young Kurdish man who hopes to become a filmmaker. He also sings, writes poetry, lives with his parents and his parrot, but knows nothing about love.

Presented by the director and part of the artistic team
