Description: Animated blogs and tweets from Iran form the backbone of this reconstruction of the 2009 Green Revolution. In May of that year, the youthful green-clad crowds were enraged, and the atmosphere in the stadium where presidential candidate Mousavi held his speech was explosive. The desire for change was huge. Election Day itself was a deception on a massive scale: the supply of ballot papers suddenly ran out, and polling stations were closed for puzzling reasons. This marked the beginning of the dark period in which Mousavi was put under house arrest, Ahmadinejad seized power and demonstrators were shot. We see these events onscreen as they were recorded with mobile phones and digital cameras. The blogs and tweets visualized using animation give an insider's view to the true extent of the suppression.
