UT-Affiliate Film Screening: Best of the West

CAAS affiliate, Maryam Kashani, director of Best of the West to be screened during the Austin Asian Film Festival!

Posted: October 29, 2007
This year’s Austin Asian Film Festival will include a UT Screening of Maryam Kashani’s film “Best of the West” on Friday, November 9th at Nuevo Onda Restaurant starting at 7pm.

Film Description: A humorous and poignant documentary chronicling the fast times of Kashani’s father and his male buddies as they emigrated from Iran as teenagers in the 1960s, immersed themselves in San Franscico counterculture, and eventually found success as entrepreneurs. The filmmaker interweaves interviews, images of pre-revolutionary Iran and an oil-hungry America, and a lively sountrack of Iranian music and American RandB, funk, and soul. (70 min, 2006)
