This group is for all people who speak Farsi or who are learning and want a relaxed atmosphere to practice what you have learned or to ask questions you may have, as well as those who are just curious about the Persian culture. Speaking Farsi at our meetups is NOT a requirement! ESL students who want to improve their English are also welcome. So don't be shy, join us at our next meetup! :)

About the Film
The forensic pathologist Dr. Nariman has a car accident with a motorcyclist and injures his 8-year-old son. He offers to take the child to a clinic nearby, but the father refuses his help and money. A few days after, in the hospital where he works, Dr. Nariman finds out that the little boy has been brought in for an autopsy after a suspicious death. Dr. Nariman is facing a dilemma: Is he responsible for the child's death due to the car accident, or did the child die of food poisoning according to another doctor's diagnosis?

"The shared burden of guilt is incisively examined in No Date, No Signature a compelling drama by Iranian filmmaker Vahid Jalilvand." — The Los Angeles Times
"An absorbing illustration of how minor actions and bad decisions can amplify one another (and have ripple effects of their own), No Date, No Signature is a sturdy morality play from the theater-trained Iranian director Vahid Jalilvand." — The New York Times
“All four main actors are in top form, but it’s Mohammadzadeh who steals the show in his scene at the poultry plant, when his desperate monologue takes on an epic, Shakespearean quality as he throws all his physical force into a verbal storm of pained outrage.” — Variety
