The Stoning of Soraya M.

Saturday, July 11, 2009
This weekend, please make an effort to see this powerful movie.

Based on a true story, it highlights the heroic plight of Iranian women for their fundamental rights, not to mention of all Iranians for freedom and democracy.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I've had the privilege of working with the writer and director of this movie, Cyrus Nowrasteh, as well as with the producers, Mpower Pictures, on a screenplay about Cuba's historic political prisoners, known as The Plantados, and can attest to their unselfish dedication to just causes worldwide.

Here's a short preview.
