Deutschland: Kinoseminare „The Green Wave“ Termine Frühjahr 2012

Der Dokumentarfilm „The Green Wave“, des in Deutschland lebenden iranischen Regisseurs Ali Samadi Ahadi, dokumentiert die gewaltsamen Ereignisse der „Grünen Revolution“ im Iran im Jahr 2009. Für den Film fügte der Regisseur zahlreiche Internetnachrichten, Twitter-Botschaften und Handyaufnahmen beteiligter Zeitzeugen zu einer dokumentarischen Gesamtschau zusammen und ergänzte diese Zeugnisse mit Trickfilmanimationen, die spielfilmartig weitere Erlebnisberichte dieser Menschen nacherzählen und visualisieren. „The Green Wave“ ist somit ein Dokumentarfilm, der das Internet erstens als dokumentarische Quelle nutzt und es gleichzeitig schafft, dank der Freiheiten des World Wide Web, die staatliche Zensur zu umgehen. Der Film ist somit gleichermaßen politisch wie auch medial interessant.

Even in death, Iran’s Baha’is face persecution

Eighteen years ago, Baha’is in the Iranian city of Sanandaj were allocated a one-hectare parcel of barren land at the side of a road for use as a cemetery.

This rocky mountainside, devoid of vegetation, was hardly prime real estate but – after the first burial there in the autumn of 1993 – local Baha’is got together to landscape the site, dig out the rocks and replace the soil. They planted and watered by hand 250 cypress and fir saplings, contributed by the Office of Agriculture. They installed electricity and built a small room where bodies could be prepared for burial.

Eye on Iran: New Bid to Stifle Iran Aid to Syria

Top Stories

WSJ: „U.S. officials have uncovered an effort by Iran to help Syria mask its oil exports and evade an American and European embargo, in a potent new sign of Tehran’s campaign to bolster Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as his regime cracks down on public opposition. American officials investigating the Iranian operation said it is designed to quietly ship Syrian crude oil to Iran, where it can be sold on the international market, with revenue going back to Damascus. Transit records document one such shipment, involving more than 91,000 metric tons of crude, which took place last month.  ‚The oil shipment to Iran was designed to evade the sanctions that have been imposed on Syria,‘ said a senior U.S. Treasury Department official familiar with the case.“  Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to speak publicly.“  Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags
