Join us at the critically acclaimed 'RADIO DREAMS's official Washington, D.C. premiere!

The film opens June 16th at Angelika Pop-Up Theater at Union Market.

Winner of the 45th Rotterdam International Film Festival’s Tiger Award, and the newest feature film from Iranian-British director Babak Jalali (FRONTIER BLUES). RADIO DREAMS creates the strange yet very real world of PARS-FM — a Farsi-language radio station broadcasting from the heart of San Francisco. The station’s program manager, Hamid — a brilliant, misunderstood Iranian writer (played by the “Iranian Bob Dylan” Mohsen Namjoo) — prepares for a triumphant broadcast — a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band. Meanwhile, Hamid must juggle a dysfunctional mix of on-air talent, station managers, and performers while fending off the owner’s plans to wrest control of the station.

With gentle humor and a deadpan eye towards cultural differences, RADIO DREAMS brings to life the sometimes bizarre experience of immigrants pursuing dreams in the U.S. A perfect mixture of honesty, art, and socio-political topicality served up as an ingenious, offbeat transmission.
