Lifting the Veil of Secrecy

A necessary and intriguing peek into the heart of Iran’s young people who stand at the center of its challenges and at the helm of its future. The NYC Campus hosts a screening of Nobody’s Enemy and discussion with the filmmaker on February 23.

Join Project Pericles and the Center for Community Action and Research at a screening of the film, Nobody’s Enemy: The Youth Culture of Iran Today, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Neda Sarmast on Thursday, February 23, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Room W-614 in One Pace Plaza on the NYC Campus.

This ground-breaking documentary lifts the veil of secrecy that has shrouded the faces of Iran’s young people for the past 30 years. It examines their lives, voices and hopes in a time of great change and international instability. In the lead up to the most historic elections of the past three decades and a possible conflict with America or Israel, Neda, a first time Iranian–American documentary filmmaker, reentered the country of her birth and uncovered stories that young Iranians want to tell us–stories we need to hear.

This event is part of the “In Good Faith” series of events dedicated to raising awareness and encouraging discussion on questions of faith and the nexus of religion and politics.
