“Education Under Fire”

A 30-minute documentary called Education Under Fire is drawing attention to Iran’s de facto policy of preventing Bahá’ís from attending universities because of their religious beliefs. The film, produced by Single Arrow Productions and co-sponsored by Amnesty International, documents the growth and struggle of the Bahá’í Institute for Higher Education, a semi-underground university formed in 1987 to give Bahá’ís in Iran a chance to further their education. The Iranian government tried to shut down the institute in May 2011 by raiding more than 30 homes and arresting more than a dozen professors and administrators.
