Iran - Life under Pressure

Iran - Leben unter Druck

Did you know that Tehran's most popular hospital is Jewish? The Sapihr clinic, located in a poor neighborhood in the south of Iran's capital, offers treatment free of charge to those in need. 99 percent of the patients are Muslims, but doctors and nurses get their salary from the Jewish community. After the Iranian Revolution, seven out of ten Jews left Iran. The remaining 30.000 claim that they want to stay in a country that was populated by their ancestors, centuries before Arab warriors brought Islam. Since 1979 Jews enjoy an ambivalent status as a 'protected minority'. 

This documentary gives an impressive insight of the Iranian minority's life under the double pressure of Islamic society and international sanctions and impresses with stunning comments of the people there.
