This was a project/movement Austin Mann and his cousin Brandon Cotter created to help bring awareness to a situation in Iran where two Christians were arrested on March 5, 2009 and put into prison for nothing other than their faith. Austin was the cinematographer and I edited this piece.

A few days after this was shot, on Sept 11, 2009, Austin and I flew to London where we documented a peaceful prayer vigil in from of the Iranian embassy to protest and pray for the safe release of the two women, Maryam and Marzieh.

On November 18, 2010, Maryam Rustampoor and Marzieh Amirizadeh were released from Evin Prison in Tehran after being held for 259 days.
