Unleash presents: Raving Iran for Charity (Screening & Party)


  • RA PICK
  • The Raving Iran film exposes the persecution faced by two Iranian DJs in their home country. With a film screening followed by a Q&A session, this whole evening promises to be fascinating.
  • We are honoured and excited to announce the screening of RAVING IRAN, a documentary that lifts the lid on Tehran’s underground electronic music scene and follows the life of DJ’s Anoosh and Arash (Blade & Beard). We hoped that Anoosh and Arash would have been able to join us for the event but unfortunately both their visas were refused by the UK embassy in Geneva. However our good friend Amirali has kindly offered to step in and DJ in place of the absent Blade & Beard. We couldn't think of a better fit for the event given Amirali's musical pedigree and Persian roots. - PROGRAMME - 19:00 - 20:45 Welcome Drinks with Eclectic beats by Deborah Ipekel 20:45 - 22:15 Screening of Raving Iran 22:15 - 22:45 Q&A with Blade&Beard (via SKYPE) 23:00 - 01:00 DJ set from Amirali 01:00 - 02:00 DJ Set from ??? - AMIRALI - Having released his debut album "In Time" to unanimous critical acclaim, with Resident Advisor calling it "an example of perfect craftsmanship, Amirali has since performed at some of the world's most prestigious music venues from Berghain / Panorama Bar and fabriclondon to the Viena Opera House and gone onto launch his own imprint Dark Matters. - FOOD - Food will be provided by amazing Persian caterers Jakobs ! - CHARITY - All proceeds will go to: Crisis - the national charity for homeless people " We help people directly out of homelessness, and campaign for the social changes needed to solve it altogether.
