1. Massacre of Political Dissidents in Iran (1988)

    BACK THE PROJECT ON INDIEGOGO: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/budding-grief

    == Our Documentary ==

    During the Summer of 1988, a couple of thousands of political prisoners who were the dissidents of the Islamic Regime were hanged in Iran. Those who were in prisons were already sentenced in court but they had to participate in the 2-3 minutes re-trials and without knowing exactly what was going on, were convicted and executed secretly.

    PanteA Bahrami (Director) was in prison after the revolution for four years (1981-1985) and has witnessed the situation of Iran's prisons first hand herself. She tried to track down the survivors of that massacre and interviewed them in the course of 7 years.
    This documentary is a result of 7 years work and right now is in the final stages. We need your support for some parts of the animation and editing.

    We hope that by documenting this painful piece of history, this injustice would never happen again.

    == What We Need & What You Get ==

    The Post-Production costs for the 90 minute documentary are budgeted at $8,000. This includes editing, titling, color correct, short animation, mastering and, of course, closed captioning.

    If we would be lucky enough to surpass our goal, every dollar raised beyond the $8,000 will go towards attending in different festivals.

    HELP US MAKE THE FEATURE FILM AND TELL THE STORY OF THE LIFE OF THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN HUMANITY

    == The Impact ==

    We believe, Massacre of 1988 was a crime against humanity and the world should know what happened and those who were involved should take the responsibility for their actions. We believe that making this documentary can be a pivotal step towards this goal.

  2. The documentary "From Scream to Scream" is the story of a young woman, who spent 8 years of her youth in a prison of the Islamic Republic. Her story is a part of the story of this generation of Iranian women (Soudabeh Ardavan) and a part of the political history of Iran , which the Islamic Regime did not speak about and hid until now. Massacres from 1981 till 1988 are still unknown for the new generation.
    She is also an artist. There are 200 paintings and designs in this documentary that she painted in prison and sent out of jail illegally. She describes the relationship between political prisoners, her protest, but also their sadness, pain, fear, horror, sadness, loss and much more…
