Mezrab x Movies that Matter: Terrestrial Verses

Movies that Matter is teaming up with Mezrab House of Stories to link two of Mezrab’s storytellers to festival films. Before the screening of Terrestrial Verses, there will be a short story by Meysam Forooz.

Meysam, an actor and theater maker originally from Tehran, Iran, now calls Amsterdam home. His journey from Iran to the Netherlands has broadened his understanding of different cultures and human rights issues. Meysam is driven by his ability to discuss these topics, which inspires his work as a storyteller.

Mezrab is a storytelling cafe in Amsterdam. View their programme at
