Cyrus Nowrasteh‘s “The Stoning of Soraya M.” will be having its World Premiere in the Discovery section of the Toronto International Film Festival. Starring Shohreh Aghdashloo, the film follows a woman falsely accused of adultery in a remote Iranian village. Based on the book byFreidoune Sahebjam, TIFF describes “Stoning” as about “voiceless women, armed with only their innocence and dignity, [who] are no match for the overwhelming primal forces that overrun their town.” Nowrasteh talked to indieWIRE about the film and his hopes for Toronto.
