Breaking the Chains: The Story of the Girls Schools in Iran [TRAILER]

This is the English trailer for ‘Breaking the Chains: The Story of the Girls School in Iran‘, a short animation about the role Baha’is played in bringing education to girls in Iran in the early 1900s. The animation explains how in the early 1900s, only 5% of the population of Iran had access to basic writing skills, and knowledge of the sciences were kept exclusively to men. Breaking this cycle of oppression was no small feat, and that’s when Tahirih and Abdu’l-Baha come into the story.

This film was made by Flavio Azm Rassekh in collaboration with PersianBMS.
