A documentary about the uprising in Iran.
Since the 2009 elections, nothing is like it once was in Iran. The demonstrations and brutal repressions have pushed the country into a state of paralysis. Where does Iran go from here? Will the current system prevail or is the opposition gaining enough momentum to overthrow the political establishment?
Through animated sequences of personal testimonies and interviews with leading political thinkers, like Noble Prize winner Shirin Ebadi, ’The Green Wave’ casts a spotlight on events surrounding the Presidential elections. We capture the atmosphere that led to the surprisingly high election turnout and afterward prompted mass demonstrations. Investigating allegations of electoral fraud and arbitrary arrests, torture and rape, we question if a peaceful opposition can stay peaceful under such circumstances.
