Starring Mohsen Namjoo, Kabul Dreams & Metallica's Lars Ulrich and winner of the 45th Rotterdam International Film Festival’s Tiger Award, RADIO DREAMS is the newest feature film from Iranian-British director Babak Jalali (FRONTIER BLUES). The film creates the strange yet very real world of PARS-FM — a Farsi-language radio station broadcasting from the heart of San Francisco. The station’s program manager, Hamid — a brilliant, misunderstood Iranian writer (played by Mohsen Namjoo) — prepares for a triumphant broadcast — a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band. Meanwhile, Hamid must juggle a dysfunctional mix of on-air talent, station managers, and performers while fending off the owner’s plans to wrest control of the station.

With gentle humor and artistry, RADIO DREAMS brings to life the sometimes bizarre experience of immigrants pursuing dreams in the U.S. A perfect mixture of honesty, art, and socio-political topicality served up as an ingenious, offbeat transmission.
