Bridge to Iran with Host Parisa Soultani

The Queen and I

Directed by Nahid Persson Sarvestani


Thirty years ago, Nahid Persson took part in the revolution that brought down Iran's monarchy driving the Shah and his queen, Farah Diba, to exile in Paris where the queen lives to this today.


In The Queen and I, Nahid meets her former opponent and they have frequent confrontations and revelations. Their encounter evolves into an unforeseen journey of two women in exile, who have more in common than either of them would have envisioned.
