No One Knows About Persian Cats Special Screenings

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Here at we love fresh cinema and music, so when we heard that No One Knows About Persian Cats the Cannes 2009 Special Jury Prize Winner had a UK release date we were quite excited. This is after all, the same Jury that gave A Prophet top marks.

I'm also kind of hooked on the theme song "Human Jungle" used in the trailer by ‘Take It Easy Hospital’ Some kind of catchy.

For over 30 years the Iranian government has banned certain types of music deemed as impure, compelling many fans of Iranian alternative music and western bands to go underground.

No One Knows About Persian Cats combines musical performances with an edgy underground narrative and follows Iranian musicians Negar (Negar Shaghagi) and Ashkan (Ashkan Koshanejad) as they look for band members to play at a London concert as well as their tribulations to acquire visas that will allow them to leave Iran to do so.

No One Knows About Persian Cats will be on general release at selected cinemas from 26 March, 2010.

It also looks like Network Releasing are also busy organising some special preview(?) screenings that the cast will be attending followed by a DJ session by DJ Shahram.
