Arshadi, Shahrzad and Amin Zarghami. 1999.
12 min. Canada.
This is a short video celebrating the legacyof thousands of women who lost their lives in Iran between 1979 and 1999 due to their political, social and religious beliefs. For Amin Zarghami & Shahrzad Arshadi, working on this video was an opportunity to pay tribute to the memory of these women – some of whom they knew personally – and grieve their loss. It is intended as a testament both to their suffering and to the political tyranny that led to their execution. Please click here to view a pdf of the poster: Red Names.
