International Women’s Day discover a human rights heroine in ‘Nasrin’

Launching this International Women’s Day, new and exclusive to iwonder, comes ‘Nasrin’, and the inspiring story of one woman’s fight for freedom, equality and justice inside one of the world’s most strictly controlled states.

Narrated by Academy Award-winner Olivia Colman, and secretly filmed in Iran by women and men who risked arrest, this film follows the life and work of renowned human rights lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, and the efforts 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, LGBTQ, religious minorities, journalists, artists, and those facing the death penalty. She was arrested in June 2018 and sentenced to 38 years in prison, plus 148 lashes, though even from prison, she continues to challenge the authorities.

Featuring acclaimed filmmaker Jafar Panahi, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, journalist Ann Curry, exiled women’s rights activist Mansoureh Shojaee, and Nasrin’s equally courageous husband Reza Khandan, Nasrin is a film that demands attention.

iwonder CEO, James Bridges, says of the film: “It’s a privilege to be able to mark this year’s International Women’s Day with the launch of such a powerful and important film, drawing attention to Nasrin Sotoudeh as a source of inspiration to women and men around the world. Her difficult journey is a testament to both the irrepressible spirit of strong women who refuse to be oppressed, and the continuing need for further progress in women’s rights globally, so that stories like hers need not be repeated.”
