In-person: filmmaker Roya Rastegar.

The ongoing protests in Iran that began with the murder of Mahsa Amini in police custody after she was detained for violating Iran's mandatory hijab law have impacted every level of Iranian society and sparked international support. Within Iran, across the Iranian diaspora, and beyond, the slogan “Woman, Life, Freedom,” has become the rallying cry of activists fighting for the human rights of women and all marginalized communities as the necessary precondition for fundamental change. Iranian filmmakers, moving image media artists and documentarians have been central to this struggle for years. This program of short films and conversation, curated with filmmaker and activist Roya Rastegar, will highlight recent works that speak to and about the central issues driving the protests with a focus on the role and responsibilities of all artists during such times of change.
