Radio Dreams is a dark comedy that follows a brilliant and misunderstood Iranian writer through his travails at a San Francisco–based satellite radio station as he prepares to broadcast a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band.
Radio Dreams creates the odd yet very real world of PARS-FM – a Farsi-language radio station broadcasting from the heart of San Francisco. The story unfolds over a single day as the station’s program manager, Hamid – a brilliant, misunderstood Iranian writer (played by the “Iranian Bob Dylan” Mohsen Namjoo) – prepares for a triumphant broadcast – a live performance pairing Metallica and Kabul Dreams, Afghanistan’s first rock band. Meanwhile, Hamid must juggle a dysfunctional mix of on-air talent, station managers, and performers while fending off the owner’s plans to wrest control of the station.
“Contrasting wavelengths of humor and seriousness come through with impressive clarity in director/co-writer Babak Jalali’s sophomore outing Radio Dreams.” – Hollywood Reporter
“Royami is the heart of the film: It is his sincere and artistically principled dream of a musical union between East and West, between Metallica and Kabul Dreams, that fuels the film’s engine.” – Variety
