Tue, May, 2 2017

Beyond the Bombs, the documentary featuring Iranian metal band Underground Dreams journey from Iran to LA will have their Worldwide Premiere on May 22nd at the Hoboken International Film Festival. The film focuses on the band as they risk everything to take a chance and pursue their dream of a music career after hiding in the underground music scene in Tehran. The trio of musicians secretly work via Skype with now labelmate and producer, Paul Lewis while navigating imposed sanctions on Iran and the ban on metal music. After sorting through a multitude of Visa issues, one of which being no US embassy in their country, the band finally makes it out of Iran to escape the bomb ridden country. Upon arriving in the US, they begin to feel both the exhilaration of freedom to create and perform their music, while simultaneously facing the loss of potentially being unable to return to their families, if they release the music and documentary. They find themselves feeling stuck in Los Angeles on a roller coaster between freedom and fear that leads to gut wrenching lyrical journeys, emotional peaks and valleys and ultimately a choice for their dream.
