Art and Experience: The Dubai Iranian Club in the UAE is screening “Barcode” directed by Mostafa Kiai and “We Won’t Be Habituated” by Ebrahim Ebrahimian.

Screenings began on Sunday and will run for a fortnight.

“Barcode” starring Bahram Radan and Pejman Bazeqi seeks to demonstrate how certain social factors may shape the fate of citizens as it tells the story of two young simple-minded friends who turn into dangerous criminals.

Earlier in February during a press conference at the 34th Fajr Film Festival, Kiai said that “Barcode” is a caricature of the current Iranian society.

“We Won’t Be Habituated” with an all-star cast including Mohammadreza Forutan, Hedieh Tehrani and Sareh Bayat is about a university professor who comes under suspicion by his wife for disloyalty.
