La lapidation de Soraya M.

Le Coin Du Crime

L’histoire que nous allons vous raconter aujourd’hui n’est pas une affaire criminelle en soit, mais bien celle d’un abominable piège tendu à une jeune femme innocente qui avait pour seul défaut d’aimer les gens et la vie, malgré toutes les difficultés et les injustices que toutes celles de son sexe subissent quotidiennement dans la République Islamique d’Iran. L’histoire de Soraya Manutchehri aurait pu rester sous silence, ensevelie avec elle dans la terre, enfermée pour toujours et oubliée, mais les choses avaient été décidées autrement. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

I've always been a huge reader and I've probably beena writer all my life really, from when I was first at school. I came up withthese wonderful stories that I used to share with my teachers. So I think I'vejust always enjoyed writing and always loved reading. I think sometimes ifyou're a very keen reader the next step often is to try and write somethingyourself. And so I started. I found my way into writing again when I was atuniversity and just thought 'I actually want to do this.' I want to see mybooks on the shelf with my name on there.

I wasprobably around 19 or 20 and it took me two years to write that first book. SoI had been writing for a long time. I sold my first book when I was pregnantwith my first child. And I was 27 then. So I have been I had been writing for alittle while now. I guess I've been published for about nine years.Jenny: [00:01:38] Fantastic. So you've now got a reallyimpressive list of contemporary romance nearly 30 books that counted on yourwebsite. And we'll talk about that contemporary romance a little later. But themost recent books are branching out into historical fiction and they've beendoing particularly well.

Agnes Varda, Soraya M och filmavtalet som försvann

Kino

Det bidde en tumme. I veckans Kino tar vi oss an den svenska filmens framtid. I veckan presenterades den stora filmutredningen som pekar framåt mot en helt ny filmpolitik i Sverige. Branschrepresentanter kommer till studion för att diskutera och spekulera i vad som kommer att hända när regeringen tar över ansvaret för filmsverige. Hur gör man för att komma ihåg saker när man passerat 80-strecket och minnet börjar svika? Regissören Agnes Varda har sin egen metod - hon filmar allt. Hör henne berätta om minnen, filmfinansiärer och sina hemmakvarter för Christina Höglund. "The Stoning of Soraya M" är en berättelse om hur en oskyldig kvinna stenas till döds i en liten by Iran 7 år efter revolutionen. En historia om hur en liten klick män offrar en kvinna för sina egna ekonomiska och fåfänga syften, genom att vifta med koranen och argumentera med hjälp av sharia. Kino har pratat med filmregissören Curyus Nowrasdeh om hans bioaktuella film. Programledare: Roger Wilson.

The Stoning of Soraya M. / Cyrus Nowrasteh interview

KUCI: Film School

An interview with CYRUS NOWRASTEH the director of THE STONING OF SORAYA M. - a classic fable of good vs. evil and an inspiring tribute to courageous women fighting against violence all around the world. In a world of corruption and injustice, a single courageous voice can tell a story that changes everything. This is what lies at the heart of this emotionally charged film. Based on a true story, this tale of a village's persecution of an innocent woman becomes both a daring act of witness and a parable about how people react when someone in their community is turned into a scapegoat: who will join forces with the plot, who will surrender to the mob, and who will dare to stand up for what's right. THE STONING OF SORAYA M. is inspired by French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam's acclaimed international best-seller of the same name which first brought global attention to the real Soraya, who in 1986 was stoned to death by her fellow villagers, in the presence of her children.
