Seven winters in Tehran: the trial that announces the revolt


CRITICAL – In theaters this Wednesday, Seven Winters in Tehran relates the fight of the family of Reyhaneh Jabbari, hanged in 2014, after a biased instruction.

In Iran, winter is the season for hanging women.

Reyhaneh Jabbari, 27, spent seven winters in prison before being executed in 2014. Her crime?

Stabbing to death the man who tried to rape her.

To tell the story of Reyhaneh Jabbari, German director Steffi Niederzoll mixes home movies, clandestine footage, phone recordings and letters written by Reyhaneh to her family in detention.

They are read by the Iranian actress Zar Amir Ebrahimi, awarded at Cannes (2022) for

Les Nuits de Mashhad

and exiled to Paris.

We discover a joyful 14-year-old girl, pampered by a loving mother and a progressive father.

The mother, Shole, is testifying from Berlin, where she found refuge with Reyhaneh's two sisters.

The father, Fereydoon, deprived of a passport, cannot leave Tehran.

They remember their beloved daughter.

In 2007, Reyhaneh is a 19-year-old young woman with a bright future.
