The very first screening of Razor’s Edge: The Legacy of Iranian Actresses in USA was at Kanoon Iranian in Washington, DC, on Monday, January 30, 2017.

The Honar Foundation sponsored this prestigious, red carpet event by arranging another screening of Razor’s Edge at the Writers Guild of America on February 19, 2017, in Los Angeles. For the first time, the ticket price for a feature documentary was $50, and all five hundred seats were filled. Six Iranian actresses, out of the twenty-one who participated in the film, were in attendance, and the emcee was Homa Sarshar, the Iranian /American writer and journalist.

On May 6, the Iranian Cultural Society of Miami held a screening at Florida International University, and the next evening, May 7, Kanoon Iranian Connecticut held a further event, screening Razor’s Edge at Yale University. Mr. Bahman Maghsoudlou attended both screenings to discuss his film with the audience.

On June, 2017, the film landed at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco, by invitation of Ms. Nazy Kaviani, in what turned out to be a fabulous afternoon. The link below:

Dr. Siamak Aram, the president of Toranj, arranged the last American screening of Razor’s Edge in the USA, at George Washington University in Washington, DC, on December 2, 2017.
