Indie Night Thursday: Be Like Others

In the Islamic Republic of Iran, homosexuality is punishable by death, yet sex-change operations have been legal for “diagnosed transsexuals” for more than 20 years. In this provocative documentary, get an up-close view of the Iranian citizens who are engaged in a human drama of the highest stakes imaginable: confronted with the dilemma of changing who they are in order to be with the person they love.

From our friends at FilmCatcher, please check out this video interview with director Tanaz Eshaghian.
