Tehran in Action/Shay' Yahdos fi Tahran
Early in the morning, in a public park in central Tehran, people from different social classes gather to cultivate their own well-being. (Director: Seifollah Samadian | Iran | 2011 | 10 mins | Farsi w/ English subtitles)

Chicken with Plums/Poulet aux Prunes
Nasser Ali Khan has a broken heart. His true love is long lost to him, he is stuck in a loveless marriage – and now the precious instrument that has accompanied him through decades as the world's most renowned violinist has met a violent end. So Nasser Ali gets into bed and gives up. But that is only the beginning of this delirious fairy tale from Marjane Satrapi, creator of the acclaimed graphic novel Persepolis, who once again ingeniously combines the personal with the political. (Director: Marjane Satrapi | France-Germany-Belgium | 2011 | 91 mins | French-Farsi w/ English subtitles)
