Moving and inspiring
What an amazing and moving story. I just saw the film at the Sundance Film Festival and was so happy to learn the movie plays on Itunes. This is an important movie that that world should see. Thank you for making this movie. Sepideh is girl power at its best.
Proud of Sepideh
I have a very similar situation to Sepideh, except that i’m a young man in Tehran. with the lack of equipment, very high costs, and all this light and air pollution in Tehran, it seems impossible for us to reach our dreams… Sepideh inspired me and i’m happy to see her on the way of success.
This was an amazing and power story about this young girl who had a love and passion for astronomy and her desire to pursue her dreams in becoming an Astronomer. It was such an emotional moment when she got the surprise phone call from a female astronaut. She reminds me of me when I was her age. I had such a love for astronomy and was always watching the stars in the freezing cold. I wish her the best!
