Private Film Screening: "NASRIN"

The Middle East Program presents NASRIN

Secretly filmed in Iran by women and men who risked arrest to make this film. NASRIN is an immersive portrait of the world’s most honored human rights activist and political prisoner, Nasrin Sotoudeh, and of Iran’s remarkably resilient women’s rights movement. In the courts and on the streets, Nasrin has long fought for the rights of women, children, LGBT prisoners, religious minorities, journalists and artists, and those facing the death penalty.

A discussion between Director & Producer Jeff Kaufman and Haleh Esfandiari will follow the virtual screening, moderated by Merissa Khurma.
