A free screening of the movie "Modest Reception (Paziraie Sadeh)
" will be held at Parkland College in Room C118 on Thursday, June 27 at 6:30 p.m. Directed by Mani Haghighi (Iran 2012), the movie is being shown as part of the Global Lens 2013 film series.
Leila and Kaveh are a mysterious pair from Tehran, traveling the mountainous countryside in their Lexus coupe to push big bags of money on the locals. This turns out to be not so easy, but fascinating to watch, as the cagey couple invent increasingly brazen stratagems to place cash in the hands of the wary, proud or indifferent. Will they push things too far? Are they losing sight of their mission? What exactly is their mission?
