Out today is a new piece by Sahba Aminikia honoring Nasrin Sotoudeh, an Iranian human rights lawyer who was wrongfully sentenced to 38 years of prison and 148 lashes for defending women’s right to choose their own attire. This piece was created in August 2020, during her 46-day hunger strike to protest the conditions of political prisoners in Iran during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Nasrin’s Dream is inspired by the voices of the people from all around the world, every one of them appearing like drops of rain: once these drops turn into rain, no power in the world will be able to resist them.
In December 2020, Nasrin Sotoudeh was awarded the Eleanor Roosevelt Prize for her career-long dedication to the advancement of universal human rights. Today, Nasrin, a documentary about her life’s work, was released on all streaming platforms >
Nasrin’s Dream, with music by Sahba Aminikia and visuals by Pinar Demiral, was commissioned for the Kronos Quartet by the Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies at Stanford University (Stanford Iranian Studies Program), with additional support from the Kronos Performing Arts Association.
