A Must See Documentary...

Last winter, Mr. Akrami was in Montreal for the screening of A Few Simple Shots at Concordia University. There, I had the priviledge to meet and sit beside Ms. Minoo Hameli who was the main person portrayed in the film. As we watched together the movie, I turned my head toward Ms. Hameli as she saw herself testifying about the tortures she endured from the IRI agents who arrested her. On her cheek, I saw one tear drop. To this day, I am still haunted about what I witnessed on that evening.

During the screening, I remarked that none of our non-iranian local Iranshenazi, nor our caviar-left wing Québécois intellectuels branchés du quartier Plateau-Mont-Royal were attending. Usually, you can see them in great numbers attending demonstrations for Palestine beside those who fly the illegal in Canada Hezbollah flag.


Mes distingués "collègues", où diable étiez-vous? Où est donc passé votre conscience? Koja boudid?



There is another documentary from the National Film Board of Canada on the IRI's human rights abuses.It is called The Tree Remembers, by Masoud Raouf. You can also contact Mr. Raouf on this link or through the NFB to obtain a copy of his film.
