A video by Germán Vogel, Santiago, Chile
This is a video I did as a Chilean uni student
not linked to Iran by anything but my personal choice.
As a cultures lover, I became interested in Iran as a nation that develops a uniquely organic society based on family, social cohesion, beautiful traditions and religion. In a world in which the wealth of cultural differences has suffered great losses, Iran offered me real new definitions and perspectives, based upon a millenary uninterrupted history any sincere person on this planet should envy, and consolidated by leaders who preserve Iran's independence not just from world powers, but from the absolutization of Western concepts of freedom, evolution and progress.
As a physics student, I came to envy Iranians for having leaders who understand the importance of the scientific development of a nation as a way to remain genuinely independent. For someone like me, a nation that develops a nanotech, biotech, and petrochemical industries, and now even space research and its current development of nuclear tech, is no coincidence.
What I present in this video is what I found out for myself, from starting out as someone who blindly believed in Iran's and Iranian leader's 'evilness', to having redefined my views checking for myself this beautiful country.
There is a lot of talking about Iran: terrorism, Arabization, arbitrary executions, repression, censorship, but I don't believe in it. They did it once to overthrow Mossadeq in 1953, the CIA itself turning Iranians against the government, and to me it is pointless to wait some more 50 years until the CIA declassifies more files so just then people regret then about not having stopped the demonization of Iran when it could have made a difference.
