NASRIN: The real-life story of a women’s rights activist

Wednesday, March 24 at 2 p.m., in the B Building cafeteria

Secretly filmed in Iran, the documentary NASRIN is an immersive profile of one of the world’s most courageous human rights activists, Nasrin Sotoudeh, a human right's lawyer and leading figure in Iran’s remarkably resilient women’s rights movement.

NASRIN director Jeff Kaufman and producer Marcia Ross will talk about the film to the Triton College community on Wednesday, March 24, 2 p.m., directly followed by a showing of the film. Participants can view the film and discussion on Zoom {insert link} in person or on campus in the B Building cafeteria where social distancing guidelines are enforced and masks are required.

The documentary was filmed in Iran by women and men who risked arrest to tell Nasrin Sotoudeh’s story. 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. She was arrested in June 2018 for representing women who were protesting Iran’s mandatory hijab law and she was sentenced to 38 years in prison, plus 148 lashes. Even from prison, she has continued to challenge the authorities.
