Red, White and the Green

Audio Tracks 

In June 2009, the world was shaken by the 10th Iranian presidential election. The events following the election received great media attention. In what was the most violent days since the Islamic revolution, over 65 people were killed, and the world began to wonder just what could cause such widespread anger with the government.

Red, White and the Green is a documentary which takes place during the last three weeks leading up to the June 22nd Election. It features over 55 minutes of never before seen footages in the Iranian capital. The most moving aspect of the movie is the great optimism which most people show towards the upcoming election, not knowing the great horror that is around the corner for most of them.

During the film, the director interviews various prominent figures, several of which have been imprisoned since the election. The list includes dissident journalist Isa Saharkhiz and renounced director Jafar Panahi.
