Screening of film followed by an Online Panel with the filmmakers of the new documentary Nasrin -- discussion of the film and the urgent fight for all political prisoners in Iran. This is a unique opportunity to learn about the courageous life and work of imprisoned human-rights lawyer and activist Nasrin Sotoudeh...the making of this extraordinary film by Jeff Kaufman and Marcia Ross...the dire situation for political prisoners in Iran...and why all who stand for justice and yearn for a better world should stand with these political prisoners. Nasrin has been sentenced to decades in prison and dozens of lashes. She now has COVID-19 and a heart condition but continues to challenge the authorities and advocate for other political prisoners.
Nasrin was filmed in Iran by women and men who risked arrest to make the film. “Nasrin will make you angry at injustice, and give you hope. This is a must-see film!” - Gloria Steinem
