France, Germany 2023 – Director: Steffi Niederzoll – Original language: Farsi – Subtitles: English, German
“I wish for the day when no girl is raped anymore. I wish for the day when the rights of the weak are not violated anymore.” Reyhaneh Jabbari killed in self-defence, stood up for her rights and was sentenced to death. She was 26 years old. The protagonist’s courage and absolute determination leave a deep impression. Against the background of the current women’s rights movement in Iran, this is an explosive and depressing film.
