New York premiere is on! Screenings & Party info!

Posted by Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder (Creator)

Hello everyone!

As you all probably know by now we open in NYC on Friday Oct 12, which is TODAY! The first show is at 12:15 so just a few hours away.

If you live in New York, or know people who do, please send them the release info (see below) and inspire them to come to the shows. We're sold out for the Fri & Sat evening shows, but ALL other shows have plenty of tickets available and we really need to fill those seats.

Also, today at 2pm EST Kevin and Till will be on CNN (on Brooke Baldwin’s 2pm Newsroom) - in case you have some time to kill then.

Here's the NYC release info please spread it far and wide and inspire folks to come:

We also love this one here from yesterday since FINALLY someone talks about how bizarre this whole politics-love-triangle-basketball story is... http://www.salon.com/2012/10/09/the_iran_job_love_and_basketball_%E2%80%94_in_shiraz/

And check out the Carson Daly show talking about the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eEbSfWKNC8&feature=share

And a live interview on CURRENT TV about the film: https://current.box.com/s/sj7yst76sihdeq4kt513

Party info:

Following the 8:35 screening on Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night we'll have a gathering at Vol de Nuit @ 148 W. 4th, just east of 6th Ave. When you enter the space, there's a door to the left right after you walk in. Go up the stairs and there's a private room that we have reserved. We'll probably get there around 10:30.
