SEVEN WINTERS IN TEHRAN, (SIEBEN WINTER IN TEHRAN), Director: Steffi Niederzoll France/Germany, 2023
In 2007, Reyhaneh Jabbari, a 19-year-old Tehran interior design student just launching her career is lured to the home of a prospective client where he attempts to rape her. In self-defense she reaches for a kitchen knife, and the would-be rapist dies of his injury. In the ancient convoluted system of justice that prevails in Iran under Sharia law, she is charged with murder and sentenced to hang. Tracing the remarkable story of Jabbari’s prison years as she becomes an international activist for women’s justice from behind bars, director Niederzoll assembles secret videos, chilling phone recordings, letters and live testimonies. Jabbari’s family desperately attempts to appeal for clemency, but the dead man’s relatives steadfastly demand her execution. Peace Film Award, 2023 Berlin International Film Festival; Compass-Perspektive Award, Berlin International Film Festival. In Persian with English subtitles.
“Powerful…enraging and heartbreaking in equal measures.” -Joseph Fahim, Middle East Eye
