Political idealism, personal desire, and economic pragmatism all wrestle in Mohsen Yalfani’s Guest of a Few Days. Two friends, separated by divergent paths, and the woman who binds them, re-unite in post-revolutionary Iran. A love triangle ensues amidst painful truths and political fall-out, as dreams are re-kindled and ridiculed.
Followed by a Q & A session with artistic director Jamil Khoury.
