Donnerstag, 18. Juli 2024, 18:00 – 20:30, Dokumentationszentrum Flucht, Vertreibung, Versöhnung

The son of the mullah portrays the Iranian journalist Ruhollah Zam. In exile in France, he risks his life every day to expose the corruption of the Iranian regime. As the son of a high-ranking mullah, he was able to observe the machinations of the Iranian government at close quarters from an early age. In 2009, he had to flee the country because of his regime-critical reporting. When he is lured into an ambush in Iraq 10 years later, he is once again confronted first-hand with the brutality of the government. A gripping documentary thriller about the fight for freedom of the press.
