A new documentary film from German director Susanne Regina Meures tells the story of two young Iranians in the dangerous world of Tehran's underground techno scene.

Raving Iran follows techno producers Anoosh and Arash, who risk arrest, jail, and worse for their love of electronic music. Their journey takes them from the desert parties of their home country to one of Europe's biggest electronic music festivals.

Meures only has one prior film to her credit, but producer Christian Frei has previously directed numerous documentaries, including War Photographer (2001) and The Giant Buddhas (2005).
