Rangeh eshgh 1980
Description: One week every year Iranians stay out all night. Girls abandon legal curfews. Boys weep. Communities gather to mourn their saint's death, ask that wishes be granted, give thanks for prayers answered. While this week showcases Iran's most restrictive religious elements, it offers openings for this culture's most intimate connections. Is a change in the perception of love inherently political because it affects individuals and their view of the world? As we follow three couples negotiating love, we learn freedom is not what we assume it is and love is more than we imagine it to be.
Released: N/A Director: Maryam Keshavarz Writers: Maryam Keshavarz Actors: N/A Genres: Documentary

Lovable #

Released 4/23/2007

Description: At some point, everyone has asked the question, why is it so difficult to search love? In this final installment of the autobiographical trilogy that contains Vinyl and I, Curmudgeon, Alan Zweig reflects with disarming candour on why, if he longs for a partner and children, he is still single at mid-life. Through intimate, heartfelt and often hilarious interviews with a series of diverse, smart and pretty single women, Zweig explores yearnings for the romantic myths of our culture and the difficulty of finding and sustaining relationships. Some girls have come to agree and prefer being alone, but many still dream of a future they can share. Rather than remaining the objective observer, Zweig approaches his female topics as kindred spirits, sharing their vulnerability and openness. A excellent mixed tape of love songs provides the backdrop for this courageously candid look at love and longing.

Welcome to Nollywood #

Released 4/12/2007

Description: The Nigerian movie industry, known as Nollywood, has exploded in the last ten years. Actually the most famous cinema in all of west Africa--even more famous than imports of Hollywood or Bollywood films--the Nigerian movie industry has distinguished itself by shooting all movies (called video films) on digital video. This has allowed production schedules to be compressed (films are shot in few days) and instantly brought to store (distribution consists of bringing movies to Idumota electronics store in Lagos and selling them for home viewing). The sheer volume of Nigerian video movies is staggering: one estimate has a movie being produced for every day of the year. Nollywood is actually the third-largest movie industry in the world, generating US$286 million a year for the Nigerian economy. And yet this vibrant, profitable industry is virtually unknown outside of Africa.

Water and Power #

Released 10/1/1989

Description: Pat O'Neill, one of the most interesting filmmakers in America today, offers a dazzling reflection on the conflict between nature and boy in Los Angeles, or the desertification of the city's surroundings due to its enormous water consumption. More interestingly, it is also a movie in the age-old tradition of town symphonies: a movie about LA's foundation myths and the dreams it embodies, about its history and (grim) future, its topography and ethnography. O'Neill uses footage from few classic movies to recreate the few layers of meaning emanating from the city, juxtaposing photos and fantasies and hardly ever allowing one picture to go untouched. George Lockwood's swarming soundtrack is likewise composed of conflicting languages, an elaborate work of plunderphonics in which snippets of sound stolen from films collide with electronic soundscapes, contemporary chamber music, improv, and what not.

Rangeh eshgh Reviews:

This documentary is a new look at Iran's social fabric. The director, Maryam Keshavarz, offers a lyrical portrayal of the boys and the girls in the movie who discuss their views on love. Furthermore, "The Color of Love" tears down the (negative) Western perception of Iran that we obtain everyday through the news reports. When we look beyond the clothes, we see that young boys and girls of the East and the West have the same dreams and aspirations. For example, there was an interesting scene: During a religious holiday, some folks go to the main square to mourn Imam Hossein (like a highly revered saint in the Christian tradition), whereas others go to the festivities to cruise and search a mate/spouse. The same scenario holds real in churches, where some church goers go to pray, while others go to meet their future spouse.Maryam Keshavarz is a director to watch for.


In Persian poetry, love and desire for other human being are both expressed frankly and frequently, and sometimes (though not always, as some scholars would have us believe!) as metaphors for the human desire for achieving union with God.In this documentary, shot in the historical town of Shiraz (ah,to be away from Tehran for once!) during the mourning month of Muharram, the film-maker alternates her focus between both worldly and other-worldly love. On the one hand we have three sets of folks talking about their relationships (a couple married some years, the wife clearly somewhat disenchanted; a young boy and girl - not yet a couple - in love with the concept of being in love; an old lady remembering the love of her life)while on the another these very folks are shown preparing for or participating in the mourning festival. An intimate look at the lives of ordinary people, this documentary taught me much more about the zone of religion in the daily lives of Iranians than did many books. Highly recommended.
