Description

Nasrin Sotoudeh never stood down from a tough battle as a human rights attorney in Iran. Fans of filmmaker Jafar Panahi will remember her appearance in his subversive film Taxi. Now she’s serving a prison sentence of 38 years for representing women who protested the country’s mandatory hijab law. This immersive portrait weaves extensive filming with Sotoudeh along with interviews with Panahi, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, and journalist Ann Curry. Even while she’s behind bars, Nasrin won’t let her voice be silenced.  

This film has English language closed captioning available.  For more information about closed captions and accessibility at DOC NYC, please click here.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Jeff Kaufman (Director), immediately following the film.
