This year marks the 9th anniversary of the unlawful imprisonment of the seven Baha’i ‘Yaran’ (the ad hoc appointed leaders of the Baha’i community in Iran). The Prison Poems project is part of the worldwide campaign. #ReleaseBahai7Now to raise awareness of their plight and to seek their immediate release.
In the UK, in response to this campaign, various artists have come together to participate in the ‘Prison Poems Project’, a series of short film clips that give voice to the poems of Mahvash Sabet, one of the seven prisoners. Watch the above video of Kelly Snook’s interpretation of Mrs Sabet’s poem ‘The Sun’.
