Powerful Bahá’í documentary ‘To Light a Candle’ screening in Sydney
To Light a Candle provides a powerful account of Iran’s largest religious minority, the Bahá’ís, and their peaceful response to decades of state-sponsored persecution.
Following the 1979 Iranian revolution, Bahá’ís have faced systematic persecution including arrests, imprisonment and executions. They are also forbidden from attending or teaching at universities. The film shines light on the underground Bahá’í Institute for Higher Education (BIHE), which was established in 1987 in response to the persecution.
The one hour documentary will be followed by a panel discussion featuring the director, acclaimed Iranian Canadian filmmaker and journalist Maziar Bahari.
