Docunight with collaboration of Persian Cultural Center present: Alex & Ali Directed by Malachi Leopold (2014 / 87min, Persian/English with English subtitles) Wednesday July 6th, 2016 at 7:00 pm Iranian- American Center 6790 Top Gun St. #7, San Diego, CA 92121 Info:858-552-9355 Get Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/docunight-28-san-diego-alex-ali-tickets-26111536308 This feature documentary tells the epic love story of an American and an Iranian gay couple. Alex, a former Peace Corps volunteer, spent a decade living in Iran (1967 - 1977). While there, he met and fell in love with Ali, an Iranian whom Alex considers his soul mate. When the Islamic revolution erupted in the late 70's, Alex was forced to leave Iran - and Ali. But the two men kept their relationship alive through letters, phone calls, and emails. In May 2012, documentary filmmaker and human rights advocate Malachi Leopold followed Alex to Istanbul, where Alex and Ali reunited for the first time in 35 years, hoping to rekindle their relationship. The film follows the men as their best-laid plans are turned upside down, revealing emotionally painful twists and turns that transform their lives forever.

The film is framed around two interviews with Kiarostami, one on the Aran Islands and the other at the Cannes Film Festival in 2002. Intercut with these are interpretations of his work by those at the forefront of film criticism in the world today: Alain Bergala, Godfrey Cheshire, Michel Ciment, Adrian Martin and Jonathan Rosenbaum and colleagues such as Marin Karmitz, Jamsheed Akrami and Mohammad Attebai. Roads of Kiarostami by Abbas Kiarostami 2005 / 32 mins Persian with English Subtitles Looking to his own art for inspiration, Abbas Kiarostami reflects on the power of landscape, which combines views of the Iranian auteur's austere black-and-white photographs with poetic observations, engaging music and a politically provocative finale.
