Expat Cinema: Meet-up | NO BEARS with English subs and network drinks

At Expat Cinema: Meet up we screen recent foreign language films with English subtitles. Afterwards we get together to chat and network over a drink.

📍 Location: brand new film theatre Rialto VU.

🎥 Screening: Iranian drama NO BEARS by Jafar Panahi on Sunday the 19th of February at 18:30h.

🎬 NO BEARS: The Iranian director Jafar Panahi makes no secret of where his sympathy lies. From humble origins himself, his father was a house painter, he portrays people in socially subordinate positions: the poor, women, children. He does this in a poetic, realistic way, which has won him numerous prestigious film awards. However, the Iranian government is not pleased with his films; the censorship forbids the screening, the judiciary is after him. In July 2022, shortly after the completion of his new secretly made film No Bears, he was arrested to serve the prison sentence he had been given in 2010.
