Who are the Baha’is of Iran, and why does their government persecute them and prevent them from teaching and attending a university? Despite obvious human rights violations, the Baha’is have continued to learn and teach as presented in the film by Maziar Bahari’s To Light a Candle. This is the hopeful story of the Baha’i Institute for Higher Education in Iran, organized to give Baha’i youth the chance to earn a degree. Bahari is an Iranian Canadian journalist, filmmaker, human rights activist, and a former reporter for Newsweek from 1998 to 2011. Light refreshments served.
