Audio Tracks 

Iran’s 1978 Islamic revolution was closely associated with movie screens, cameras, and television images. At its outset, there were the arson attacks on more than 130 movie theatres, and the revolutionary events themselves were spontaneously recorded on film by the participants. Using only period footage, the filmmakers meditate upon the role of cinema, television, and film in society.
