Penn Museum First Sunday Culture Film Series: Tehran Has No More Pomegranates

April 1, 2012
02:00PM - 03:30PM

Rainey Auditorium, Penn Museum

Categories: Film Screening

Penn Museum is pleased to announce a film series addressing the theme of cultural adaptation. This month’s film, Tehran Has No More Pomegranates, offers a portrait of Tehran in Iran as it was and as it continues to change, a view nearly unseen in the west. Massoud Bakhshi, the film’s director, uses archival footage, an original visual approach and a lively soundtrack to take the viewer through 150 years of Tehran’s history.

Dr. Pardis Minuchehr, Middle East Studies Professor at George Washington University, will introduce the film and lead discussion afterwards. All programs are free with Museum admission donation.
