Join us and celebrate the opening night of the Australian premiere of TiTi; a story about selflessness, supernatural powers and the fate of the world. Patrons will be able to experience on arrival from 6.15 pm, the captivating soul of Persian folk by Perth based musician Esfandiar Shahmir (who has played with the Eastwinds Trio & Kohesia Ensemble), playing the Daf (frame drum) and Ney (flute) while enjoying a variety of tasty finger foods from the Persian Food Delivery.  The film starts at 7.00 pm.

 

A hospitalized, critically ill physicist (Parsa Pirouzfar), is investigating a theory about black holes and the fate of the world when he meets a rather eccentric hospital housekeeper named TiTi.

 

Though single, TiTi is acting as a surrogate mother for an infertile couple to serve humanity and raise money to support herself. When the physicist falls into a deep coma, TiTi, raised by Iranian gypsies and possessing supernatural powers, performs a strange ritual to save him. This is the start of an odyssey; an odyssey that changes their lives forever.
