A Cry From Iran | Full Movie

Iran, 1993. A judge issues an official death sentence to Mehdi Dibaj, a man imprisioned for 10 years because he converted from Islam to Christianity. A copy of the official order is leaked to Haik Hovsepian, the leader of the evangelical christian movement in Iran. Haik, at peril to his own life, releases the document and launches an international campaign to bring an end to the civil rights violations of the Iranian Islamic courts. International pressure mounts and the Iranian government is forced to release Dibaj at the eleventh hour. But for Haik, there is a price to pay. Very well done.

A Cry From Iran is an award-winning documentary. This true story, produced by Haik Hovsepian’s sons, contains hidden camera footage filmed in Iran during the actual events, and will be an inspiration to all who see it. (54 min)
