Hamid (actor/musician Mohsen Namjoo) immigrates to the U.S. to pursue his writing career and the American Dream. Instead, seek salve he winds up working at a small Iranian radio station, seeking artistic satisfaction through the esoteric programming he puts together for his radio audience. Meanwhile, the owners of the station try to cash in on Hamid’s only program that they see fit for commercial success — the bringing together of an on-air jam session with Kabul Dreams and their long-time idols, Metallica. The ensuing collision between artistic integrity and crass commercialism resonates with hilarity and a poignant message, as Hamid fights to maintain a balance between his ambitions and his moral compass.

Butimar Productions presents Radio Dreams, a film by director Babak Jalali, which follows an eccentric Iranian writer through his travails as he pursues his ambitious goal of bringing together Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band, at a satellite radio station in San Francisco.

Hamid (Mohsen Namjoo) immigrates to the U.S. to pursue his writing career and the American Dream. Instead, he winds up working at a small Iranian radio station, seeking artistic satisfaction through the esoteric programming he puts together for his radio audience. Meanwhile, the owners of the station try to cash in on Hamid’s only program that they see fit for commercial success — the bringing together of an on-air jam session with Kabul Dreams and their long-time idols, Metallica. The ensuing collision between artistic integrity and crass commercialism resonates with hilarity and a poignant message, as Hamid fights to maintain a balance between his ambitions and his moral compass.

“Radio dreams is about a man in exile wanting to bring his culture to San Francisco through music and art,” says Babak Jalali. “But he’s obstructed by the realities of commercial radio.”

The all-star cast of Radio Dreams includes world-renowned musician Mohsen Namjoo, considered the ‘Bob Dylan of Iran,’ and currently living in exile in the United States; the members of Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band, residing in the San Francisco Bay Area; and a special appearance by the famed Lars Ulrich of Metallica.

Lead singer of Kabul Dreams Sulyman Quardash says Metallica represents the voice of the youth for many in the Middle East.

“When I was a refugee in Uzbekistan I didn’t get to see famous bands,” says Quardash. “They don’t really travel to that part of the world. But it’s an internet era, you learn a lot. Metallica is everywhere. From the technical perspective, Metallica was instrumental in our development as a band.”
