Rock the Casbah! Rock the Casbah!

Speaking of The Clash, we can’t wait to see the Iranian film No One Knows About Persian Cats.

In what many are touting as the best music film in quite some time, this film is said to offer both an authentic perspective on current-day Iran and a great exploration of its underground and under wraps indie rock scene.  It’s winning prizes everywhere, including a Special Jury Prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

No One Knows About Persian Cats follows a boy and girl as they plan to start an indie rock band shortly after being released from prison.  Both travel to Tehran where they meet other underground rock musicians and attempt to convince them to leave Iran, all of which is highly unlikely without funds or passports.

The music sounds scintillating and features Take it Easy Hospital, Mahdyar Aghajani, Hichcas, and The Yellow Dogs Band.

Coming soon to a theater or high def television near you.

We’re sure Joe Strummer is giving the film two thumbs up, way up, from above.
