We just heard from Kimberly Willson-St. Clair, the Public Relations Coordinator & Reference Technician at Portland State
University Library, who shared her September Project for this year with us.
The Portland State University Library will present a screening of Welcome to Iran, a film about Persian issues made relevant by recent events in Iran. Filmed during a 2008 group trip made up of mostly Oregonians to Iran, it explores Persian history by visiting both ancient and contemporary sites. It combines digital stills and video in an attempt to explain the attitudes towards today’s Iran.
In addition to showing the movie, the Portland State Library will also present a discussion with the Welcome to Iran filmmaker, Art Wright.
