  • For Neda tells the personal story of Neda Agha-Soltan who became the iconic symbol of Iran’s 2009 post-election protests and struggle. Written, directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Antony Thomas, For Neda is the story of Neda Agha-Soltan whose tragic death on June 20, 2009 came to symbolize for many the struggle in Iran. Filming without official aproval and at great risk, Iranian journalist Saeed Kamali Dehghan worked secretly inside Iran to locate and film interviews with Neda’s family for the first time, while Thomas interviewed current exiles, including a friend of hers from her university days and Arash Hejazi, the doctor who was at Neda’s side when she was shot and who held her as she died. For Neda also includes videos, photos, private diaries and letters supplied by her family.
