The team has been working secretly and diligently for over two years with private detectives and together has come across new leads on Yaser Said and his whereabouts.
Published: Friday, May 24, 2013 12:14 PM CDT..More than five years after the brutal killing of two Lewisville sisters, the man responsible for their death is still on the run, but a team of movie producers is hoping their project can bring justice for the girls. “Here in the U.S., there are no laws for honor killings, they’re treated like domestic violence,” said Xoel Pamos, producer and director of “The Price of Honor.” “So far we don’t have anything to prevent honor killings. We’re hoping this film sheds some light on the problem.”
Neena Nejad and Pamos of Smart Lips Productions have spent more than two years researching and making their new film documentary, “The Price of Honor,” set to release in March 2014. The two are co-producers and directors on the film. Nejad, a native of Iran, said the movie would reveal new details about the murders of Sarah and Amina Said, who were killed in a premeditated “honor killing” by their father Yaser Said. An honor killing is the practice in which another member murders a family member in efforts to defend the family honor. Nejad said honor killings are popular in many cultures and directed mostly against women and girls, but have also been extended to men. An estimated 20,000 people are victims of this practice every year.
