BEYOND is partnering with Artworks to present the Secret Ballot, a foreign film from
Iran. You can learn more about this program by viewing Artwork's website.
From Iran comes this low-key movie that follows an idealistic, tenacious female pollster
who — accompanied by a cynical armed soldier — is tasked with gathering ballots in
a far-flung region of Iran on Election Day. In the process, the naive young woman
encounters indifferent, reluctant and uninformed voters; a language barrier; and a
multitude of voting irregularities.
The movie is free and open to the public.
