Woman Life Freedom: Extending Solidarity and Awareness about the Struggle in Iran

Written By Editor on 3/7/23 | 3/7/23

DELHI — Please join us on Saturday March 11, 4:00–6:30 pm for a special fundraising event to raise awareness and support for the ongoing struggle for human rights in Iran, in light of the #womanlifefreedom movement. Featuring a panel discussion, a film screening, and a Q&A, this event is free to attend. Bushel will be collecting donations for nonprofit organizations supporting the current activism and to provide an artist fee to the filmmaker. The event takes place at Bushel located at 106 Main Street, in Delhi. Persian food, tea, and cookies will be served. 

The event begins with a panel discussion with Iranian community members—including Delhi’s Tay Tea owner Nini Ordoubadi, architect and fashion designer Azin Valy, and community activist Miriam Nouri—who will share personal experiences as women who have lived in Iran and in the diaspora. “This will be a special opportunity to hear personal accounts from Iranian women, and to better understand the current movement,” says Pareesa Pourian, the event co-organizer. 

The panel will be followed by a screening of Dream of Silk (Nahid Rezaei, 2003, 43 minutes), selected from the recent “Films from Iran for Iran” program initiated by Another Gaze and shared with their cooperation. In Dream of Silk, director Nahid Rezaei returns to her all-girls high school twenty-five years later to explore the lives of young girls in contemporary Tehran. In this candid exploration of their dreams and hopes, the girls are at times shockingly open, often sweet, and occasionally sad as they talk about the future.
