6:00 PM Discussion: Is the Turkish Partnership Doomed? The Turkish-American bilateral relationship has its roots embedded in World War II. After committing a sizable number of combat divisions to the Korean War in 1950, Turkey was formally admitted to NATO in 1952. Since this time, the U.S. and Turkey have collaborated in numerous regional and global security initiatives. By the late 2000s, the Obama administration labelled the relationship as a 'model' partnership.

Since the onset of the Arab uprisings and heightened instability in the near and Middle East, Turkey's relationship with the United States has come under increased strain, owing largely to divergent policies that have eroded trust and undermined cooperation. Most recently, in response to the arrest of a Turkish employee of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul, the United States imposed an unprecedented ban on non-immigrant visa issuance across Turkey. To what extent has the U.S.-Turkish relationship suffered irreparable harm and are there ways that the partnership can be rebuilt? In the wider context, how will the United States approach policy-making towards the region if Turkey is not a partner or ally?

7:00 PM Film: Scorpio In 1971 three young musicians set out to perform the euphoric rock'n roll and Latin hits of their time on the stages of Tehran. Bahram Amin Salmasi (bass guitar), Baram Saidi (guitar) and Eini Keivanshokooh (drums), along with Eric Arconte (percussions) and Andranik Asatourian (piano) formed the band 'Scorpio'. Through their covers, they soon became very popular amongst enthusiasts of popular western music. They covered almost every big rock hit and brought them live to their fans in the nightclubs and discos of Tehran.
Forty years later, their memories give us a taste of the early days of the rock music movement in Iran.

Admission/Cost: $10 - $15

Location:
Persian Cultural Center

7:00 PM Film: Javad Javad Yassari's songs are emotional roller-coasters of love, loss, and loneliness. His songs have become the voice of a very old but overlooked part of Iranian culture: that of its hard working, hard drinking, tough, rough and devout downtown men and women. He rose to fame in the late 70's in Lalezar, Tehran's club strip where he sang in smoky theatres and cabarets. The revolution of 1979 turned the lights out on Lalezar and Javad's music went to dingy venues in Dubai and small European towns, and the occasional Tehran wedding, though his music lived on through bootleg cassettes and CDs.

Admission/Cost: $10 - $15
