Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi is a woman who understands Iran. Born and raised in Tehran, she later attended the American University of Paris and became a cinematographer, writer, and outspoken human rights activist. In 2001, her father, Siamak Pourzand, became a political prisoner in Iran; in 2011 he committed suicide as an act of protest against the current régime. Along with such brave women as Wafa Sultan, Buthayna Nasser, and Veena Malik, Banafsheh has not hesitated to speak the truth about Islam and Mideast issues to the imams and mullahs themselves, sometimes on Al-Jazeera television. Her current project is Red Line, an international campaign against Iran's nuclear program. Her compelling words deserve a hearing.
