Synopsis:

“The 17s” is the story of four urban teenagers in contemporary Iran in their own words. In order to make a film about the lifestyle of these teens and see their points of views, which is quite different from the life of the previous generation, the filmmakers decided to place the camera in their hands and ask them to film their own life, under the supervision of the directors during a year.

Followed by post-screening Q&A session with director.

“PELAN" is a nonprofit and nonpartisan project, organized by a group of students and graduates of "Simon Fraser University (SFU)" in Vancouver. “PELAN" has been initially designed for screening the contemporary documentaries and short films about Iranian people made by independent Iranian/non-Iranian directors. While these movies may have been banned in Iran, they have been presented in international film festivals all around the world. So, we believe this is a great opportunity for Iranian living in Vancouver to watch these artworks on a bigger scale. “PELAN" was established in 2013 and it has been happening since then and so far we have screened several documentaries from Iranian filmmakers who work inside and outside of Iran. We've also been organizing online Q&A sessions with the directors/producers at the end of the screenings.
