Persian Film Club

Initiated in 2020, Persian Film Club presents Persian-language documentaries subtitled in English on a monthly basis throughout the long semesters. The UT students, staff, and faculty will have access to the streaming link of a documentary for at least a week, followed by an online meeting with faculty members from the Persian program to discuss the film in English and Persian. 

Previous titles include Khāneh siyāh ast (The House Is Black, Forough Farroklhzad, 1962), Shahr-e man pitzā (My City Pizza, 2008) and Hameh dānā (The Omniscient, 2009) with a live Q&A with director Ala Mohseni. 

The titles chosen for Fall 2021 revolve around the topic of Afghanistan and Afghan refugees. 

If you are interested in joining Persian Film Club, please contact the Persian Program Coordinator, Dr. Babak Tabarraee.
