"Abadan" is a book by Norman Kemp.

  • also known as "Abadan; a first-hand account of the Persian oil crisis"


"Abadan" is a 2003 drama film by the Iranian filmmaker Mani Haghighi. It was his first feature film after making a few short films. Because the film was not pre-approved by Iran's Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and because it included profanity and spoken references to extramarital relations, it bypassed Tehran's 2003 Fajr International Film Festival and had its world premier in Chicago at the 2003 Festival of Films from Iran. It was also shown at the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival.
