NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE Journalist and activist Masih Alinejad is the voice of millions of Iranian women rebelling on social media against the forced use of the hijab. Exiled in the United States, Masih uses her freedom to lead one of the largest acts of civil disobedience in today’s Iran and amplify the protest in her home country. Filmmaker Nahid Persson (Prostitution Behind the Veil; The Queen and I) follows Masih as her courage is tested when violence and oppression threaten her own family members. – Thom Powers

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with subject Masih Alinejad.
