My short documentary film, Under the Staircase, is a brief account of the persecution of the Baha'i Faith in Iran. This film was completed in December 2009, and has since screened in over 25 US cities, as well as 15 countries internationally. Family interviews, stop motion illustration, old photographs, and found footage, weave together the story of my grandfather's execution and uncle's imprisonment due to their religious beliefs.
