CafeCinema 10: The Runner,Davandeh (Amir Naderi)

Sun 26 Apr 2009, 18:00, by Bardia Sa'adi Nejad & Morad Sadeghi, at Visual Arts:1395 Rene Levesque West, Montreal (Map)

Following the monthly video screening of Café Cinema focusing on Iranian Cinema in a one year--twelve sessions--program, the 6th session will include a masterpiece of Iran cinema The Runner. Davandeh is a 1985 film by Amir Naderi, one of the major directors of Iranian cinema before and after the Iranian Revolution.

The Runner was perhaps the first of the post-revolution Iranian films to attract worldwide attention. It set the tone for many of the films which followed: realism, child's eye perspective of the world, innocence, gentleness, set in poor neighbourhoods, exposing great disparities in wealth, resting much of the film on the shoulders of one young actor, using children's lives as analogies for, or explicit expositions of, the problems of the adult world.

you can watch some parts of the movie on Youtube.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
