On the Trail of The Stoning of Soraya M.

Good news! I found one theater in Aventura (Aventura 24 Theatres 19501 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL 33180) that will be playing The Stoning of Soraya M. on July 10. However, no dates are set for Miami yet. For those of you who missed my last post regarding the film, here is a description of it:

The movie is based on a true story of one courageous Iranian woman's attempt to expose atrocities that befell on her niece, who was stoned to death because she was accused of adultery. The allegations against her are false and the very nature of stoning a person to death is barbaric and goes against basic human rights. The news reports I have read have given this movie raving reviews and the film has opened its audiences' eyes to the lack of women's rights in Iran.
