Event

The Iran Job
When American basketball player Kevin Sheppard accepts a job to play in one of the world's most feared countries  Iran  he expects the worst. But what he finds is a country brimming with generosity, acceptance, and sensuality. With a charismatic personality that charms everyone he meets, Kevin forms an unlikely friendship with three outspoken Iranian women who share with him their strong opinions on everything from politics to religion to gender roles. Kevin's season in Iran eventually culminates in something much bigger than basketball: the uprising and subsequent suppression of Iran's reformist Green Movement  a powerful prelude to the sweeping changes currently unfolding across the Middle East in the wake of the Arab Spring. In The Iran Job director Till Schauder reveals the human, often humorous, and sometimes heartbreaking sides of Iran, giving us access to a country often hidden in mystery. The film's soundtrack features some of the most cutting-edge Iranian rap and hip-hop artists, including Shahin Najafi, Jaduguaran, and ZedBazi. The Kickstarter campaign to fund the film was one of the most successful crowd-funding campaigns since the site's launch, generating major media hits and donations for finishing funds from all over the world.
