Plays Fri., May 24 at 7:00 PM at the Michigan. Presented by Termeh at U-M.
It’s 1988 and, at the height of the Iran-Iraq War, Tehran is bombed relentlessly. The days that pass are full of foreboding, and yet, love, affection, hope, and life itself manage to sweep away the fear of death from those surrounded by it. Love may often be difficult to comprehend, but death is a horrible certitude. ‘Bomb, A Love Story’ shows how, even when faced with the darkness of death, love and hope will find a way.
This screening is sponsored by Termeh at UoM, introducing contemporary Iranian culture through seminars, workshops, book discussions, and movie screenings.
Drama/War. 96 min. In Persian with English Subtitles.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s writer and director Payman Maadi!
