The 2013 Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival: Faces of Media will showcase 2011 Iranian documentary, Fragments of a Revolution, on Sunday, April 7, at 2pm at the Melwood Screening Room! The event will feature an art presentation by CMU MFA student Felipe Castelblanco and Iranian poet Nima Dehghani! A food reception will also be provided compliments of Conflict Kitchen.
Fragments of a Revolution is not the story of Egypt, Libya, or Syria, but of the movement that started it all: the Green Revolution in Iran. An anonymous filmmaker living virtually in Iran tells the story of the[masked] election protests by sharing with us his personal archives of YouTube videos, tweets, emails, and other brief clips of the chaos that authorities tried to shield from our eyes. Like Anonymous, we travel to the streets of Tehran through social media channels and return to reality with a new sense of what it means to be countless but to still count.
Presented in conjunction with The Center for the Arts in Society @ CMU.
Regular Admission*: $5 seniors and students | $8 general
* $3 discounted tickets for groups of 10 or more
