Video: Letters from Iran - The aftermath of Iran's Green Revolution
While winds of change have been blowing through the Arab
world this year, Iranians have been forced to wait for political reform.
In 2009, in the aftermath of an election that saw Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad controversially returned to power as president of the Islamic
Republic, millions took to the streets of Tehran to protest against the result.
But the demonstrations were brutally repressed and the hopes of the "green
revolutionaries" were dashed.
Since then Iran has closed itself off to international media scrutiny and it has
been difficult to determine exactly what happened to the many thousands of
dissidents arrested and imprisoned during the protests, or the current scale of
political opposition to the regime.
Yet as this film reveals, that opposition is still alive and kicking and just as
eager for change as before. Letters from Iran paints a fascinating portrait of
the aftermath of the Green Revolution and a country holding its breath.
