This film chronicles the #notacrime movement, which “mixes old-school street art and shiny new smartphones to fight for human rights in Iran.”
“The Baha’is are Iran’s largest religious minority. But Iran’s government has persecuted them since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Businesses are torched, people are fired from their jobs, thousands are harassed and jailed, and hundreds have been killed.
“We started a campaign to fight this injustice. Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Dr Shirin Ebadi—both Nobel Peace Prize laureates—are two of our biggest supporters. Hollywood stars like Mark Ruffalo, Rainn Wilson, Nazanin Boniadi, Justin Baldoni and Omid Djalili have endorsed the campaign.”
I was brought in during post-production to create a series of instrumental pieces of music reflecting elements of the locations where the campaign took place or considered: NYC, Brazil, Iran.
