March at the Movies in Fujairah

Art House movies will be screening at the Fujairah Tennis Club when Peter Chase shares some of his favorite films open to the public free of charge.

New Series
A series of classic cinema from around the world is commencing on Wednesday evenings at the Fujairah Tennis and Country Club (see location) starting at 7:30 pm.

In March the theme is Masterpieces from Iran.

If you have seen any of these films, once or twice is not enough. If you have never seen these movies then you are in for a real treat. These films have a documentary style and simple storyline which takes us deep into the realities of children, parents, and the single life in and around Tehran.

Wednesday March 2 "Children of Heaven" written and directed by Majid Majadi.

Wednesday March 9 "Ten" directed by Abbas Kiarostami.

Wednesday March 16 "Taste of Cherry" by Abbas Kiarostami.

Wednesday March 23 "The Wind Will Carry Us" a film by Abbas Kiarostami.

Wednesday March 30 To be announced.

Peter Chase says:

“All of these movies are award winners. Everything is natural as we enter into the scenery of every day life in Iran. There is nothing contrived or manipulative in these movies, yet even the most simple story becomes an epic account. The perfect pace and editing of these films makes them timeless. I like the way each of these movies end and stay with you the next day.”

Admission is free. The films are in Farsi with English subtitles.

Convenor: Peter Chase 050 458 6957.
