The Battle for Iran’s Soul – Remembering as Resistance. Film + Talk
Film + Talk
Film: Hitch – An Iranian Story. (A ticket for the film is required for the talk.)
The current protest against the regime in Iran is no longer a cry for reform. The protesters now want to get rid of the regime. What is really going on and why is it not more present in the media? Do we really understand the uprising in Iran?
In the context of the current uprisings, where intimidation and threats to protestors and their families is all too common, ritual and symbolic acts of documentation and remembering become acts of resistance.
