After a year of having the pleasure to screen different MENA movies, CiMENA will be celebrating its one year anniversary on July the 6th! For this occasion, we will be screening the movie About Elly (2009) by the Iranian director Asghar Farhadi.

The movie tells the story of a group of friends who are traveling from Tehran to spend a weekend at the Caspian seaside. Sepideh brings along Elly, her daughter’s kindergarten teacher, in the hopes of setting her up with recently divorced Ahmad. The story starts to unfold after some rather sudden developments.

We are delighted to see you again and are looking forward to celebrating one year of CiMENA with you!

You are welcome to join us at 19:00 at Leeszaal West in Rotterdam. Tickets are 4 euros (cash only) and can be bought at the door.

19:00 – Doors open
19:30 – Start of movie
21:30 – Chai & Chilling
