The Sydney Feminists have teamed up with United Nations Youth Australia to bring you a screening of Don't Bury My Heart, a powerful documentary about child executions in Iran. Created by director/producer Saba Vasefi, the film has been screened for the BBC, Amnesty International in London, as well as the Copenhagen International Film Festival and the UN in Geneva.

Despite its subject matter, the film is not graphic but rather artistic in style. With World Day Against the Death Penalty coming up on the 10th October, now is the time to draw attention to this important issue.

"Vasefi’s powerful film about the contemporary practice of child executions in Iran is both engaging and stirring. Relying on artistic photography and haunting music, the filmmaker takes us on a wide-eyed journey into what has become one of the most contentious human rights issues of our time. The perspectives of the families of both the accused and the victim are given equal representation, along with the views of scholars and citizens. The film delicately balances objectivity and an emotional reading of the issue, painting a complex picture of how Iranians feel about, and deal with, this most chilling of religious practices."

While the film is specifically about child execution in Iran, the event is broadly focused on the various perils affecting our youth, such as sex trafficking, slavery and war. To this end, we have a line-up of some incredible speakers who will discuss these topics on the night in a panel event. In addition, documentary film maker and human rights activist Saba Vasefi will be present to introduce her film to the audience.

Proceeds from the night will go towards funding the work of UN Youth and The Sydney Feminists.
