My Stolen Revolution (2013) Trailer
Trailer for My Stolen Revolution.
In 1979 activist Nahid Persson Sarvestani narrowly escaped revolutionary Iran and impending imprisonment, leaving behind her closest allies and a beloved brother she never saw again. Thirty years later, driven by guilt and overwhelmed with memories, she sets out to find her surviving friends and the details of her brother's final days.
Returning to the Los Angeles Film Festival, documentarian Persson Sarvestani presents a deeply moving, intensely personal narrative that unfolds as she reunites with an astonishingly open and eloquent group of women. Through their stories, which reconstruct a shared past equal parts harrowing and inspiring, Persson Sarvestani is led to her own redemption.
