In his third film, director and writer Bahman Ghobadi tells the story of two 20-somethings trying to inspire others through music. What makes this film different from others is not only its characters, but itz location.
Negar and Ashkan, two possible lovers but definitely bandmates, are bohemian musicians who want to spread their sound and meet others like them from around the globe. They decide to get visas and passports and out of Tehran, Iran — where free speech and music are condemned and illegal.
Sought by the Iranian police, the two search for a safe practice space, venue and loyal friends. Based on true accounts, No One Knows About Persian Cats is an inspiring and unique must-see.
Persian with English subtitles.
