Channel 4 has commissioned a single documentary ‘Nazanin’ by filmmaker and journalist Darius Bazargan that gives exclusive access into the life of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s husband Richard and his family as he campaigns to bring his wife Nazanin home from detention in Iran.

The film shows the inner workings of the drama through the eyes of those caught up in it: Richard Ratcliffe, his young daughter Gabriella – and from Nazanin herself whilst detained in Iran.

‘Nazanin’ is bulled an “intimate access driven documentary – part love story, part political thriller.” with never before seen material filmed by Nazanin herself about her ordeal.

The film shows the family in London during the final tense, dramatic days, as a specialist British Foreign Office negotiating team in Tehran wrangle with the Revolutionary Guards over the price for her freedom, as the journey home unfolds and have exclusive pictures of the reunion at a British military airbase.

Nazanin will TX later this year. It is filmed and directed by Darius Bazargan, Exec produced by Ben de Pear and Commissioned by Nevine Mabro.
