Roxana Saberi to host film screening at Fargo Theatre

Roxana Saberi will make an appearance at the Fargo Theatre when she hosts an evening of film and conversation on Sept. 9.

The Fargo native and journalist who gained international fame when she was held prisoner in Iran, will start the evening with a book signing at 6 p.m., followed by a 7 p.m. screening of the film “No One Knows About Persian Cats,” a movie about the underground music scene in Tehran, Iran.

Saberi is a co-screenwriter of the film which won a special jury prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

Admission is $5 and Saberi will participate in a Q&A after the screening.
