The good people at Mobile Kino are presenting a special preview screening of the much-anticipated documentary Raving Iran ahead of its release in late September.

Raving Iran tells the story of Anoosh and Arash, a pair of DJs at the centre of Tehran’s underground techno scene. Tired of hiding from the police and their stagnating career, they organise one last techno rave under dangerous circumstances in the desert. Back in Tehran they try their luck selling their illegally produced album without permission. When Anoosh is arrested, there seems to be no hope left. But then they receive a phone call from the biggest techno festival in the world. Once landed in Switzerland, the haze of the instant euphoria evaporates quickly when the seriousness of the situation starts to dawn on them.

Fans of electronic music, or just great storytelling in general, will enjoy this unique opportunity to hear a different kind of narrative from the Middle East. Tickets can be booked through Mobile Kino directly.
