With the Unites States withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal, we are in a critical moment with US/Iranian relations. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, joins us on October 5, 2018 at the People’s Forum to discuss Trump’s foreign policy and her latest book, “Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The talk will be followed by the screening of the documentary film, The Girls about Iranian high school girls, their hopes and aspirations, and a Q &A with the Director Fery Malek Madani, who traveled across Iran engaging them in discussions with young Iranians girls about their hopes and rights.
"One, two, three ... Inhale, exhale, let go, keep dreaming. Imagine in ten years time, where are you, with whom? What are you doing ?" This is how these young girls from different parts of deep Iran are invited to look into the future and think about their dreams that they will be photographing for an international exhibition. A documentary film that breathes a breath of fresh air and reveals an Iranian feminine society apart from all clichés.” 47 min subtitled in English
The discussion will be preceded by a local meeting of NYC divest activists from 6-7 pm in the same location.
