Nasrin Sotoudeh has been chosen as one of this year’s TIME 100 – Time Magazine’s
“Most Influential People of 2021”.
A secretly filmed personal portrait of Iranian woman rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh. The fact that she is currently in prison for standing up for human rights, makes this documentary all the more urgent. Nasrin Sotoudeh is an impressively determined woman, whose optimism and calm fighting spirit are awe-inspiring. We see her at work for
outlawed film director Jafar Panahi, in whose illegally made Taxi she starred in 2015. And for Narges Hosseini, who faced prison charges for publicly removing her hijab, but who refused to repent. That same principled stance sadly has landed Nasrin Sotoudeh in prison herself; she was sentenced to 38 years imprisonment and 148 lashes.
