Wave of revolution
A colorful collage of video and web 2.0 footage from a country originally considered a part of the ‘Axis of Evil’ shows a suppressed nation on the verge (if not in the midst) of a youth-led revolution. The film brings together issues of human rights, political power, and the threat of nuclear development and the whole story is told through voices of Iran that even "W" would have to characterize as westernized which makes it yet another example of why it’s so important to find the right balance between international interaction and stigmatization.
