Hailed ‘director of the decade’ (Roger Ebert ), Bahrani has eloquently told the story of US immigrants in films such as Chop Shop (2007) and Goodbye Solo (2008). Born to Iranian parents, he is at the forefront of ‘Neo-Neo Realism’. In conversation with Rebhandl, Bahrani will discuss the ‘neo’ in realism, and how its limits can be pushed.
