Critics are calling the film “extraordinary”, as well as “captivating, beautifully orchestrated, emotionally charged… and fast-paced”.
In the words of one audience member, it feels “like a political thriller… The pace never let down!”
Now after three sold-out openings with several standing ovations and an extended run, First to Stand is coming to Toronto.
A Q&A will follow the screening with human rights champion Irwin Cotler (by zoom), pioneer of the women’s rights movement in Iran Shaparak Shajarizadeh, and the award-winning filmmakers Irene Lilienheim Angelico and Abbey Neidik.
