The Cost of Discrimination is the story of discrimination in Iran and South Africa. The documentary film examines life under South African Apartheid and draws parallels with the Iranian authorities’ continued persecution of the Baha’is in Iran.
Researched and presented by Arash Azizi, The Cost of Discrimination narrates the lives of Baha’i South Africans from all backgrounds — white, black, “colored,” and also those of Iranian heritage who have lived in and witnessed persecution in both societies. Among those IranWire interviewed for the film are a former advisor to Nelson Mandela who had to flee Iran and became a leading South African economist, elder blacks in Soweto who remember the most horrendous years of Apartheid, and a retired air force intelligence officer from the Afrikaner community.
