film at FOR: "Women Without Men"

Sunday, October 16, 2011 - 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Fellowship of Reconciliation, 521 No. Broadway, Nyack, NY

Alan Levin, 845-358-4601

Some dramatic films are a better form for learning about history than documentaries. WOMEN WITHOUT MEN is Shirin Neshat's independent film adaptation of Shahrnush Parsipur's magic realist novel. The story chronicles the intertwining lives of four Iranian women during the summer of 1953; a cataclysmic moment in Iranian history when an American led, British backed coup d'état brought down the democratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and reinstalled the Shah to power.
This film has been featured at Sundance and the Toronto Film Festival among others.

Stephen Kinzer, author of Reset: Iran, Turkey, and America's Future (Henry Holt)

Kinzer has built a career out of books on our nation's bastardly (a word that needs to be used in more press copy, yes?) interruption of the sovereignty of others. Most famous was his All the Shah's Men, most recent his comprehensive Overthrow. My favorite thus far has been the Latin-American focused Bitter Fruit. Here he gives us a superbly timed examination of the relationship between ourselves, Iran, and Turkey. This is an important one.

This is a particularly grave time because fighting is expected to grow
dramatically in Afghanistan in the next few months, and violence is
increasing in Iraq as the political leaders we have supported struggle for
power. In addition, there is the concern that the US may soon be engaged in
an attack against Iran.
