Film showing: The Secret Fatwa

This documentary “The Secret Fatwa”, by filmmaker Delnaz Abadi, is the
true story of a massacre of thousands of political prisoners in Iran. In 1988
prisoners were put in lockdown, blindfolded and questioned about their
religious beliefs and murdered if they failed this "test." To this day, the
Islamic Republic has maintained a wall of silence, denial and lies about the
massacre.
Revolution Books supports the courageous uprising in Iran which was
sparked by the murder of Mahsa Amini for “improper hijab.” For 9 weeks this
uprising has enveloped all of Iranian society in the face of increasing
repression, taking many creative forms including literally dancing in the
streets. We are screening this film as Iran’s parliament recently voted to
give “maximum penalty” for Iran’s protesters imprisoned during the past two
months' uprising. Their statement calls for delivering “... God's judgments on
these enemies of God,” making over 15,000 imprisoned protesters
potentially subject to the death penalty. Stay for a discussion on the film, the
current uprising, the responsibility of people here at this moment, and the
potential of a real revolution in Iran.
