NEW YORK � June 3, 2009 � NBC News' Ann Curry presents an exclusive look at one of the world's most controversial countries, Iran. "Shadows and Secrets" airs on "Dateline NBC" Sunday, June 7 at 7 p.m. ET.
Curry reports from Iran's capital Tehran and Esfahan to explore a side of Iran unknown to most Americans.
As the nation's June 12 presidential election approaches, Curry talks with the people of Iran to learn about the country's shifting attitudes on important issues that are impacting the election, including the economy, nuclear energy, and civil rights. She attends a presidential campaign rally, interviews leading politicians, including former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami, as well as the first wife of a candidate ever to hit the campaign trail.
Curry discovers that Iran, a country rich in history, also has a rapidly changing culture with evolving opinions on women's rights, health, and religion. Curry profiles a women's rights lawyer, a top female filmmaker, a groundbreaking AIDS doctor, a leader in the Iranian Jewish community, and young Iranians seeking social change. She also explores Iran's transgender community and talks with a more conservative family wary of changes to social traditions.
David Corvo is the executive producer of "Dateline NBC."
