“The Persian Dinner” a new film by Deedenow Cinema Production Afghanistan

What “friendship” could mean in our nowadays contexts, how people “change” in “different circumstances” and how a “cultural-clash” could break relationships in an eye-blink, and finally, is “multiculturalism”, the mingle of Europeans with the “non-European newcomers” in this continent “still functional” or is it already “failed”?    

They are some of the questions that came in Amin Wahidi’s mind to write and direct his new film,”The Persian Dinner”.  

The Afghanistani filmmaker, who lives and works in Italy, is making his first feature film Italy with the subject of “multiculturalism” in this country.
