Angelika Carmel Mountain: Q&A Sunday 6/11 following the 7:45pm show with Mohsen Namjoo

About

After moving to the United States to pursue the American Dream, Hamid (Mohsen Namjoo) finds himself working at a small Iranian radio station, seeing artistic satisfation through the esoteric programming he puts together. The owners of the station try to cash in on Hamid’s only program that they see fit for commercial success — the bringing together of an on-air jam session with Kabul Dreams and their long-time idols, Metallica. The ensuing collision between artistic integrity and crass commercialism resonates with hilarity and a poignant message, as Hamid fights to maintain a balance between his ambitions and his moral compass.
