Raving Iran

Director: Susanne Regina Meures
Producer: Christian Fre

Life as a raver in today’s Iran is no fun and for Anoosh and Arash, at the centre of Tehran’s underground techno scene, its now a matter of life or imprisonment.

In a country where what they do is a punishable political act their lives are spent dodging the moral police, lying to officials and peddling their recordings on the black market. After Anoosh is arrested following a secret rave in the desert the duo realize how dire their situation is.

Despairing about their future, they receive a phone call from the biggest techno festival in the world, inviting them to Switzerland. On the verge of achieving their DJ dreams, the young men must decide if music, artistic expression and freedom are worth sacrificing family, friends, culture and country. What price freedom?
