Taghi Amirani goes behind the scenes with “Shargh”, Iran’s leading reformist newspaper. According to PBS, the movie documents three weeks in the life of this newspaper, following reporters out on stories ranging from Saddam Hussein’s first appearance in court; to a horrific bus collision that exposes Iran’s abysmal road safety record; to the trial of a professor sentenced to death for criticizing the ruling clerics; to the death of Marlon Brando.

Taghi Amirani has been a jury member at the International Emmys, Royal Television Society, One World Media Awards and Sheffield International Documentary Festival where he’s also a member of the Advisory Committee. In 2009 he was awarded a TED Fellowship followed by a TED Senior Fellowship in 2010. He ran the New York Marathon again in 2011. In 2012 he joined the Strategic Advisory Board of B612 Foundation. In February 2013 TED named Taghi Amirani the first recipient of the TED Fellows Hero Award.

Please plan to be there around 6:30 and well before 7 to get seated. The screening will start at 7 sharp. Thank you!
