Sundance Documentary Program: Women in Shroud

Wednesday Feb 11, 2009 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

This documentary film, directed by Farid Haerinejad and Mohammad Reza Kazemi, follows a dedicated group of Iranian lawyers and activists working together to counter the injustice of the death penalty. In Tehran, this means risking everything to mount a new campaign, “Stop Stoning Forever.” The film was produced with the support of the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program. The screening is a part of the Sundance Works in Progress series, which provide an opportunity for filmmakers and viewers to explore the creative process and examine the issues addressed in the film.

Sundance DFP Work-In-Progress Screenings provide a rare "behind the scenes" glimpse into the creative process with filmmakers, film subjects and thought leaders on the social issues addressed in the films.


Public programs are made possible by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
