The Color of Love (Range Eshgh)
Year:  2005
Running Time:  69 minutes
Country:  Iran/USA
Genre:  Documentary
Showtime:   Monday, March 26, 2007 @ 08:00 PM
Director:  Maryam Keshavarz

Description:
  Using the weeklong Ashura festival as a framework, THE COLOR OF LOVE documents the changing face of love and politics in the ancient city of Shiraz, Iran. As the older generation performs cathartic rituals, the city's youth are left to their own devices. They spend this time cruising the public squares, hoping for a sideways glance or a brief note from a potential lover. The film's 29-year-old, New York-based director investigates the way these shifting mores have surfaced in a culture entrenched in traditional values and how they have been influenced by western culture in the form of satellite television and the Internet. By interviewing different generations of Iranians, Keshavarz attempts to uncover how ideas of love, romance, marriage and sex have evolved in a society where politics and culture are inextricably linked.
