Sinematek and Wax Museum Records are proud to present RAVING IRAN, a documentary about two DJs doing what they love under an oppressive government.
Anoosh and Arash perform together under the moniker Blade&Beard in Tehran. Tired of hiding from the police and their stagnating career, they organise one last manic techno rave under dangerous circumstances in the desert. Back in Tehran they try their luck selling their illegally printed album without permission. 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. Once landed in Switzerland, the haze of the instant euphoria evaporates quickly when the seriousness of the situation starts to dawn on them.
Shot discreetly using iPhones, RAVING IRAN captures the raw and exhilarating underground techno scene in Tehran and the two DJs who defy the Islamic regime.
