What we're about

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! :)

Description below from the website - which also has tickets for sale: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/houston-pig-khook-daricheh-cinema-presents-tickets-56143715364 PIG (Khook) Comedy-Crime-Drama, 108 min, 2018, Color, Iran Director/ Writer/ Producer : Mani Haghighi Cast: Hasan Majuni, Leila Hatami, Leili Rashidi, Ali Mosaffa, Parinaz Izadyar, Siamak Ansari Synopsis: Banned from making films, Hasan is doubly frustrated that his muse, the actress Shiva, is working with other directors. His home life is faring no better. There are disagreements with his wife, and his aged mother is getting more and more detached from reality. But most galling of all, a serial killer is going about beheading Iran's finest filmmakers, yet Hasan remains unscathed. Why, when he is one of the greatest, is he being completely ignored? There is much to enjoy in this social satire. The hilarity and hijinks that follow are quite unlike anything in Iranian cinema.
