“Education under Fire,” a documentary produced by Single Arrow Productions and co-sponsored by Amnesty International. The 30-minute film explores the history of the Bahá’í Institute for Higher Education in Iran, a university established in 1987 to offer adherents of the faith an opportunity in higher education, an option repeatedly denied by the ruling regime in the country. According to the film’s website, the documentary “features footage and photos spanning two decades of BIHE classes, rare video from inside Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison, and photos and a film that bring alive a series of personal stories.”
The screening is being hosted by the Bahá’í Community of Columbia.
