    "Persian Cats" Director Bahman Ghobadi: "I didn't pick the topic, the topic picked me"

    The latest film about the bad boys (and girls) of rock and roll is so controversial that an entire regime is hell bent on stamping it out. The parties are seemingly tame and unlike the cliches of other movies about bands and their desire to make it big - the groupies, the drugs, the parties, the mon...
