“Raving Iran is as lean and tight as the dance music created by its protagonists . . . a black comedy of errors.” —Evil Genius

Anoosh and Arash are at the center of Tehran’s underground techno scene. Tired of hiding from the police and frustrated with their stagnating careers, they organize one last manic techno rave under dangerous circumstances in the desert. Back in Tehran they try their luck selling their illegally printed records with minimal success. When Anoosh is arrested, there seems to be no hope left. But then they receive a phone call from the biggest techno festival in the world . . . (2016, 84 min, digital)
