Raving Iran is a documentary, displaying daily problems of people that try to enjoy their lives and a little amount of freedom in the theocracy of Iran. Shot in 2014 in Teheran, Iran and at ‘Lethargy’ festival, Zurich the authenticity is unbeatable. Hidden camera cellphone material delivers never seen scenes from inside Iranian authorities, problems with publication for artists and repression imposed by the Iranian regime’s vice squad.

‘They caught me once and almost beat me to death’, Anoosh

Artists and close friends Anoosh and Arash make their way to Europe conquering all obstacles as they have the chance to perform in Zurich. Accompanying thus at Iranian underground raves and witnessing the incarceration of one on screen, touches. The movie is rounded up by a great soundtrack and leaves the viewer with a feeling of hope and despair at the same time.

Live-Set ‘Blade and Beard‘ at Harry Klein
ravingiran_20161120_1

Blade and Beard play amazing live set at Harry Klein club in Munich.

Sold out far in advance the event by prestigious dok.fest at techno club Harry Klein in the city centre of Munich was a great overall show. The club was stuffed with people eager to listen to the DJ-set played by Anoosh and Arash. The combination of the movie projection and seeing the DJs live in action leaves an imprint. Sound played by Anoosh and Arash or ‘Blade and Beard‘ builds up very well over time, delivers a great feeling of warmth, is topped off by strong bass and a fast beat and very few vocals. I advise anyone having a chance to see the duo in a live club near them to enjoy ‘Blade and Beard‘.
