BAM 6.6

February 21, 2008
UC Berkeley
Dwinelle Hall Room #145
7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

“Bam 6.6 is the story of the human condition. The film weaves together stories of survival, loss, and healing, as we explore the humanity of the Iranian people through the prism of the devastating 2003 earthquake that struck at the heart of Bam, an ancient Iranian village. Our subjects come from different walks of life – A Jewish-American woman, an American businessman, and the Iranian residents of Bam. Through their experiences, viewers will witness how a natural disaster can overcome religious and political barriers, dispel stereotypes, and unite disparate members of the human family.”

Bam 6.6 was screened at the 2007 United Nations Film Festival and this month at the Washington National Cathedral. You can learn more about the film at its website, and about the filmmaker here.

PSR is hard at work to push for real diplomacy with Iran. To make informed decisions, the American public needs to develop a full view of Iran and its citizens–one that transcends the flat, bitter image presented by the current administration. Please take this opportunity to learn what is really at stake in our relations with Iran.
