Transcript of Iranian Culture: Post-Revolution

Iranian Culture: Post-Revolution By: Brett and Annette Art/Music: Fashion: Interractive Oral: Persepolis Movies: Images, sound, and media that came from the West or East sides of Iran were strictly prohibited At the time, Islamic law was prohibiting musical activities altogether calling it "harem"
Under Ayatollah Khomeini’s strict interpretation of Shiite Islam, just about every form of music was banned
Most of Iranian pop music starts immigrated to other countries especially the U.S.
“Is Music Halal or Harem? Forbidden or Allowed?” Ultra conservative dress/extremely modest
Men and women both cover their entire bodies, including arms and legs: regardless of religion/diplomatic status
Women must cover their heads: headscarf/chad or
Women who violate this code- arrested/detained
Men- beaten in the streets Bibliography: Kurian, George Thomas, ed. "Iran: Personal Appearance." World Geography and Culture Online. Facts On File, Inc.

Iranians are not pleased with the fact they are the symbolic Islamic country. The government of Iran has made it clear that the only sources of entertainment will deal with Islam.
- use of the Qur’an, sermons, and educational programs Movies depicted the war going on between Iraq and Iran and about the Iranian martyrs. No sex or violence is permitted in films The narrator may try to portray another secretive message, but this will not go unpunished if caught. The movies try to encourage absolute values that Iranians do not exhibit anymore.

http://go.galegroup.com/ps/i.do?id=GALE%7CA229226871&v=2.1&u=whea89578&it=r&p=LitRC&sw=w Iran does not have much art. The only art is murals painted on the walls of the city Persepolis Art production seemed to decline after the Revolution Since the government has censorship, they will not let artists depict any religious violations. The biggest art gallery is the Museum of Contemporary Art Mohammed Khatami- the rules became less strict, and art and movies are starting to flourish again. The murals, like movies, represent the martyrs from the Iran and Iraq War. http://www.thecornerreport.com/media/blogs/links/persianart1.jpg http://plancksconstant.org/blog1/image2/iran-fashion-show.jpg http://www.irantravelingcenter.com/images/iran_movies.jpg Iranian movies: A small window to express.
