THE GREEN WAVE is a powerful film documenting the populist protest in Iran following the suspicious victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over progressive candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi in the Iranian presidential elections on June 12, 2009. Cell phone videos, Twitter messages, and animated blog posts as well as interviews with prominent human rights advocates and exiled Iranians bear witness to the brutal attacks by government militia in their efforts to squelch the protests that followed. Ali Samadi Ahadi's documentary is a highly contemporary chronicle of the Green Revolution, and a memorial for all those who believed in freedom and lost their lives for it.
