Rescheduled for Mar. 6 — Screening of “Education Under Fire : a Documentary and Conversation”

EUF_Logo_TextOn Wednesday, March 6, The Wilton Free Public Library is hosting a screening of “Education Under Fire,” a 30-minute documentary that reports on  The Islamic Republic of Iran’s three-decade long policy of denying members of the Baha’i community the right to attend any institute of higher education. The Iranian Baha’i community began an informal university in which classes were taught in the homes of Baha’i academics. This soon became the Baha’i Institute for High Education (BIHE). In May 2011, the Iranian government raided dozens of homes, confiscating computers and materials and detaining 18 professors and administrators.

The goal of the Education Under Fire, which is co-presented by Amnesty International, is to spread awareness of this issue as well as mitigate the effects of such discriminatory policies.

The film will be shown at 7:00 p.m. at the Library with discussion following.  Please address questions to David Olson or Lynne Hunter at 645-4831.
