For Neshvad, "The Red Suitcase" wasn't born of the current uprising in Iran -- it was filmed a year before it started.

But it has its roots in the injustices faced by his family -- of the Bahai religion, systematically persecuted in Iran -- as well as those long experienced by Iranian girls and women before Amini's death brought them to global attention.

Hope a win will bring more attention to this religious persecution.
