An Unfinished Film For My Daughter Somayeh

Directed by: Morteza Payeshenas
2015 / 90min
Persian with English subtitles

This film is the story of the Mohammadi family who live in Canada and their struggles as former and present members of the Mujahedin e Khalq (an Iranian opposition group). The father, an enthusiastic and faithful supporter of Mojahedin e Khalq himself for more than 30 years, encourages his daughter, Somaye, to join the Organization in Iraq at their training camp for a few months' training. At the time, Somaye was 17 years old. However, with the passage of time, and the confinement of his daughter for years in Camp Ashraf, the father begins to lose trust in the Organization. He is deeply concerned about his daughter, her future and safety, and so begins his quest and multiple journeys to Iraq to get her back.

'An Unfinished Film, for My Daughter Somayeh' is based on more than 500 hours Mohammadi's family video footage, shot from 1992 to 2013 by the father.

This is an important film that provides a glimpse into the inner workings of this Organization which is often veiled in secrecy. It captures the lives of the real people involved, current and past members and its effect on Iranian families everywhere. Do not miss this screening. You will walk away with many answers and many more questions.
