Secretly filmed in Iran for over two years, NASRIN an immersive portrait of human rights activist and political prisoner Nasrin Sotoudeh, and Iran’s remarkably resilient women’s rights movement. The documentary is narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Olivia Colman, and includes a new song performed by 4-time Grammy winning singer Angélique Kidjo. It features acclaimed filmmaker Jafar Panahi, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, journalist Ann Curry, exiled women’s rights activist Mansoureh Shojaee, and Nasrin supportive husband Reza Khandan. 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 2018 for representing women who protested Iran’s mandatory hijab law and sentenced to 38 years in prison, plus 148 lashes. Margaret Atwood said: "Nasrin Sotoudeh is an extraordinarily brave woman. I urge you to see this timely and important film!” Gloria Steinem said: “Nasrin, both the woman and the documentary, will make you angry at injustice, and give you hope. This is a must-see film!”
