Madrasa ( in Dari = School )A film based on true story that portrays an innocent 8 year old Afghan girl Meena who wants to go to School, but circumstances and law in Iran doesn’t allow her to do so. Her father Farhad goes to every extent so that his daughter can go to School and fulfill her dream of becoming a doctor. The story reaches a point where everything seems impossible but courage love and sacrifice makes its own statement. ( the trailer is somehow repeated half the way )
In Iran, Afghan children are not allowed in public schools, Only one child within a family can enroll, with full payment of the fee from afghans only whilst its free for others. For a man who works as a gardener in the municipal parks, $150 for every child is a lot.
"Every time I see Iranian school girls in their uniforms going to and from school I get really upset. Tears come to my eyes because for an educated person it’s very hard to have uneducated children," says Ghasser Nasseri.
Step by step Afghan refugees in Iran are being denied basic services - they’re not allowed to buy medical insurance any more, to rent a house without government permission or open a bank account.
It’s official Iranian policy that all the remaining one million Afghan refugees in Iran should go home within the next 18 months.
The education policy has sparked small protests by Afghan women and children outside UN offices and the Afghan Embassy.
"The sin of our children is only that they are refugees," read the banner in one such protest.
And in a sign of how desperate Afghan refugees are for education, informal schools have begun to open up in recent weeks.
