An Iranian Christmas Miracle!

Posted by Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder (Creator)

Hello everyone!

What a day!!! We went to bed late late last night after a birthday/holiday party at a friend's house. Kids were all sugared up from all the Xmas excitement - so not much sleep around the house - we got up at 6:30AM to do our Coop shift  at 8AM (a Brooklyn thing those of you from the NYC area will appreciate). Came back to office at 10:30 to see the article -- composed a newsletter to announce this - and then dashed to a Xmas party at our 4-year-old's day care -- Came back to office at 12:30 and realized CNN had put us on their website's front page Since then 100+ backers literally from all over the world. It's truly a Xmas miracle. The comments following the CNN article underscore the emotions this film will arouse. It's unbelievably exciting - thank you all for your support!

We have more news to share tomorrow. But in the meantime:
