A DYING KING Feature Documentary, directorial debut by Bobak Kalhor 85 minutes

An expose of the last King of Iran’s medical story

On January 16,1979, the Shah of Iran Mohamad Reza Pahlavi, left the royal palace, the Peacock Throne and his beloved country Iran for the last time, commencing what became a 19-month odyssey into exile. He wondered hopelessly from Egypt to Morocco, Bahamas, Mexico, the U.S, then Panama and back again to Egypt where he died furtively at the age of 60. His death had profound consequences for the future of the Middle East and the world, yet the untold medical story of the last King of Iran has to date remained a puzzling mystery. By unraveling the secrecy surrounding this critical period of history, beginning from the onset of the Shah’s illness, to the diagnosis/misdiagnosis and maltreatment, “A Dying King” exposes the main causes of the Iranian Revolution, the pursuant 444 days hostage crisis, and the adversarial relations between the U.S and Iran.

Angel's Salvation by Hassan AKHONDPOOR - Feature film Iran

Iran 2017 90 minutes 

Angel's (Fereshteh’s) father has gone bankrupt during Iran’s nuclear sanctions years and troubled economy. The family had to sell their home and are now living in a small, ran down house. The creditors pressure Fereshteh for their money and hurt her feminine family. Farzaneh, Fereshteh’s sister, was going to marry but her wedding was cancelled because of their situation. Fereshteh’s mother sells all home appliances and now there is only one creditor left who wants Fereshteh instead of his money. Fereshteh is in a dilemma of giving in to a married man, which will lead to her father’s release, or fighting the problems of lacking money and lacking her father.
