This jazz trio is a mix of acoustic and electronic instruments. Pianist Bongjin Jung (South Korea), bassist Ernest Zviedris (Latvia) and drummer Jeroen Heefer (Netherlands) all study at the conservatory in Tilburg. There is a natural chemistry between the three. This is why they started playing together and this is what gives their music an original sound.
Their repertoire consists of easy jazz, modern hip-hop, funk, classical and a mix of all of that. With jazz at the heart of their musical development, they have the ability to play a wide variety of styles with confidence.

Young single mother Fereshteh (Sadaf Asgari), a self-possessed graphic designer, learns that her parents will be arriving in Tehran that very night. The problem? They know nothing about her born-out-of-wedlock two-month-old. Fereshteh, in league with best friend Atefeh (Ghazal Shojaei), sets out to find someone to care for her infant ‘until tomorrow’—a quest that becomes increasingly desperate as the hours tick away… Director Ali Asgari shows how Iranian millennials are trying to break away from patriarchal norms, and he does so with a real-life tension that makes us feel the urgency and implications of Fereshteh’s situation.
‘Asgari builds a tense and resonant drama from this most simple of premises, one that hinges on a moving performance by the director’s niece, Sadaf Asgari… [The film] has a lot to say about the way younger generations in Iran right now are picking away, thread by thread, at the country’s suffocating web of legal and social censure.’—Lee Marshall, Screen

For this international film festival, Cinecitta likes to work with important international parties in the city. This event originated from a collaboration between Cinecitta, ESN and International Center. Together we want to make film in particular and culture and the arts in general more accessible to the international residents of the city.
