The green wave - Movie about the Iran

And now to something completely different. Yesterday I just watched another movie, which really impressed me. The movie "The green wave" is an animated documentary about the protests in Iran two years ago.

Because there was no official media in Iran that reported about what happened, the movie uses blog entries and twitter tweets to tell the story. At least it ends up with the governement shooting on protestors and kidnap many of them.

It is a very shocking movie, even there are no real protagonists and sometimes the "off-voice" is a bit pathetic. Although it is shocking to realize that many European countries support the governement in Iran.

I think it ist very useful for todays youth to see whats happening there, that the youth of Iran also is interested in freedom. So I give the movie 7 of 10 stars.

Kyle Shankin said...

Wow that sounds pretty good (depending on my mood). I normally would be a little cautious of the accuracy of movies that are built off of things like tweets and facebook statuses. Glad to hear it was entertaining.

I've never heard of this one, but I have loved the one movie I saw about Iran - it's a culture I know next to nothing about (except what CNN and Fox tell us every night)

Matt said...

I'm glad that a movie such as this exists. I hope that even though the powers that be in Iran want to keep a lid on it, this spreads and everyone gets a chance to see it. Great post, I like your blog! I can't wait to see more!
