NASRIN is an immersive portrait of one of the world’s most courageous human rights activists and political prisoners, Nasrin Sotoudeh, a leader of Iran’s remarkably resilient women’s rights movement and a courageous champion of of the Baha’i community in Iran. After two-and a-half-years in prison, Nasrin was released in November on a temporary medical leave with a heart condition and Covid. She was abruptly returned to Qarchak Prison on December 2. // “NASRIN is a profile in courage for the 21st century and a movie that really has to be seen.” – Newsweek // “Nasrin is one of the most inspiring and courageous people in the world. She’s a role model for people everywhere. The film NASRIN is powerful, informative and crucially important.” – Rainn Wilson

About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days

The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.
