To Light A Candle Coming to Red Deer College

To Light a Candle, a testament to the spirit and determination of the Baha’i community in Iran, will be screening

To Light a Candle, a testament to the spirit and determination of the Baha’i community in Iran, will be screening at the Red Deer College on Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Margaret Parsons Theatre.

Through personal stories and dramatic archival footage, To Light a Candle gives a powerful account of the Baha’i people in Iran. This religious minority builds solidarity, resilience and pride among its people through its passion for education.

Forbidden from attending or teaching at universities in Iran after the 1979 Islamic revolution, the students and teachers face enormous obstacles. Classes are held in private homes secretly and the threat of arrest is part of everyday life.

To Light a Candle highlights how education can play a vital role in supporting communities and sustaining hope.

To Light a Candle is sponsored by the Red Deer Baha’i’s and Red Deer College.
