Elise Aurbach, Iran Specialist for Amnesty International, USA, calls Education Under Fire "One of the most powerful human documentaries I have ever seen... [exposing] an outrage that until now has received little attention -- the systemtic denial of an entire religious community of the right to pursue higher education in their own country."

On Tuesday, November 13th at 7 PM in Talbot Auditorium, a screening of Education Under Fire will be presented by the USM Baha'i Campus Association.  The film will be followed by a discussion including community members who have been directly affected by the oppressive actions of the Iranian government.
