“Babak-o-Doestan” (Babak and friends) at AstaroTheatro
Babak
The quintet “Babak-o-Doestan” (Babak and friends) performs original songs with influences from Jazz, Fado, Turkish and Iranian music and combines this with contemporary or classical poetry from Iranian poets like Rumi, Shamloo, Sepehri and Farrokhzad. With band members from Iran, Turkey, Canada and the Netherlands they play honest and passionate mixed music; poetic and full of nostalgia and melancholy. Babak-o-Doestan plays a special trio performance at AstaroTheatro.

RadicalFriends winner jury award for Best Bolivian Feature Film 2014 @ International Film Festival for Human Rights, Sucre Bolivia

REVIEWS: Amongst all the documentaries dealing with environmental activism, director Chihiro Geuzebroek has hit upon a winning formula to detail something that’s so often rendered with the sledgehammer of didacticism. First of all, she’s the subject of the film, a personal journey undertaken by a cute, plucky “little Dutch girl” (of Bolivian heritage) which, frankly, goes a long way to rendering a picture that’s not merely palatable, but includes a wealth of information in an agreeable, entertaining fashion. (Greg Klymkiw) — REVIEW FILM CORNER [CANADA]

Radical Friends could easily have been a self-indulgent work were it not for Geuzebroek’s extreme earnestness and deep respect for Bolivia’s culture and its activists. With the help of endearing animations and a relaxed interview style, the filmmaker has created a unique film that is both informative and emotional. (Elena Lowe) — REVIEW DORKSHELF [CANADA]

Chihiro Geuzebroek is present at AstaroTheatro during the screening of her movie for presentation, talks and Q&A
