Ali Samadi Ahadi’s The Green Wave is a moving account of the Iran’s 2010 Green Revolution, using collage and illustration to tell the stories of the demonstrators as they bravely fought for change and reform under ultra-conservative President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
In addition, the filmmakers incorporated the new devices—mobiles, Twitter, Facebook, blogs—that the protestors used to illustrate how uprisings and revolutions are new being fought and mobilised in this new wave of revolution.
