Summary
Today is International Women's Day and an incredible and emotionally charged movie hits shelves on DVD tomorrow. THE STONING OF SORAYA M. is a true story that tells the modern tale of an Iranian village’s persecution of an innocent woman. Inspired by Paris-based journalist Freidoune Sahebjam’s acclaimed international best-seller of the same name, the account brought global attention to the reality of Sharia law and the real Soraya, who in 1986 was buried to her waist in her Iranian hometown square and stoned to death by her fellow villagers. Director, Cyrus Nowrasteh explains why he decided to do this movie. www.thestoning.com
