WOMEN’S FREEDOM CENTER BRINGS FILM “MY STOLEN
REVOLUTION” TO ROCKINGHAM LIBRARY – JAN.10
On Wednesday, January 10 at 6:30 p.m., the Women's Freedom Center presents the documentary film "My Stolen Revolution" at the Rockingham Library.
As a student activist in Iran’s 1979 revolution that overthrew the
dictatorial Shah, Nahid Persson Sarvestani fled to Sweden with her baby after Islamists seized power and began persecuting leftists who had been their revolutionary allies. Three decades later, events in Iran inspire Nahid to revisit that part of her life. Shifting skillfully between past and present, this deeply personal documentary is an essential resource for understanding Iran today.
"My Stolen Revolution" is the fifth in a series of 6 films by and about women, sponsored by the Women's Freedom Center running the second Wednesday of each month, September 2017 through February 2018 at Rockingham Library. If you were not able to make it to the Women's Film Festival in Brattleboro, the Women’s Freedom Center is bringing the festival films to you. Films are free and open to the public.
