DER Podcast: Director Naomi Levari talks AMEER GOT HIS GUN

Ameer Screening SkypeWe are happy to announce the first screening in DER’s 2013 Fall Film Series was a great success! On September 19th, Ameer Got His Gun was shown at Emerson College’s Bright Family Screening Room, and was followed by a thought-provoking Q and A with the film’s director, Naomi Levari. Speaking with Naomi was wonderful, and we’re so grateful to her for sharing her inspiration for the film, the experience of filming Ameer and his family, and for raising questions about an individual’s ability to change society.

For those who weren’t able to attend, we’ve created a podcast of the event. Please enjoy the conversation, and we’ll see you at the screening of Fambul Tok on October 24th!
