A film that challenges the passivity of the international community in the face of ongoing political repression, Iran: Voices of the Unheard brings us the story of Iranian secularists through three fascinating characters. Their social, economic and educational backgrounds differ sharply but all share a love for their motherland and a passion for freedom from political repression and theocracy. Beautifully photographed and brilliantly scored, the film presents a picture of life in Iran that demonstrates the struggles of secular Iranians - both private and public.
