SGS Film Festival: Travellers
This year the Stanford Global Studies Summer Film Festival will be held virtually. Join us from the comfort of your home as we watch films from around the world that focus on the theme “Common Worlds, Limitless Realities: Futurism and Fantasy in Global Cinema.”

The Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies invites you to watch "Travellers" from home at a time that works for your schedule, then join us on Zoom for a post-screening discussion with Iranian Studies director Dr. Abbas Milani. The film will be made available August 6-9 and the link will be emailed to registrants ahead of time. Film is in Persian with English subtitles. Discussion will be in English.
