Iran might seem hostile towards some countries, but it sure does love the trannies.

On Sept. 9, learn more about the Islamic Republic’s suprisingly liberal policies concerning gender reassignment surgeries in “The Birthday,” a Farsi-language documentary that will screen at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s “The Best of NewFest.”

For those who missed out on the annual June festival, the BAM film series resurrects its award-winners and audience favorites over the course of a single weekend.

Other films include “Saving Marriage,” directed by Mike Roth and John Henning, which chronicles the struggle to keep gay marriage legal in Massachusetts.

If the Ayatollah Khomeini granted permission for gender reassignment surgery, anything’s possible.

“The Best of NewFest” runs Sept. 7–9 at BAM’s Rose Cinemas (30 Lafayette Ave., at Ashland Place in Fort Greene). Tickets are $11. For information, call (718) 636-4100 or visit
