Trailer released for film based on the true story of two gay teenagers publicly hung in Iran
Sin-Inspired By A True Story aims to highlight the hardships faced by gay people in Iran

A film based on the shocking true story of an Iranian teenager, hung in public with his partner for being gay aims to highlight the hardships faced by people in Iran.

The movie, called Sin - Based On A True Story, is trying to raise $160,000 (€124,000), to tell the story of the events leading up to and after the public hanging in 2005 of one of the boys who was hung alongside his partner.

Film maker Wajahat Ali Abbas, is using crowd funding website Kickstart.com to raise the money needed to put the film into full production.

Speaking about his motivation to make a film based on the hanging, Abbas says: ‘Moved by this incident, since 2005 I have done extensive research on hate crimes because of sexual orientation in the USA and worldwide and found some shocking facts.

‘There are no words in any language to adequately convey the level of sympathy, and body-crushing grief for someone losing their life because they are gay or lesbian.'

Images of the hanging were broadcast around the world in 2005, bringing Iran international condemnation and highlighted the country's laws. Under Islamic law (Sharia), homosexuality is punishable by death. Many LGBT Iranians are forced to flee and seek asylum.
