Screening: “Climbing Iran”

Tonight, the Icelandic Alpine Club (ÍSALP) and Klifurhúsið will screen “Climbing Iran” in solidarity with Iranian women. The documentary is about Nashim Eshqi, a professional Iranian climber and women’s rights activist, who decides to break barriers imposed on women in her home country. For the occasion, Nashim recorded a personal video that will be shown before the documentary. And to top it off, all proceeds will go to charities working to help Irianian women.
