Beyond the Classroom presents "Fragments of a Revolution"

FRAGMENTS OF A REVOLUTION goes beyond the headlines and the tweets to tell the story of the protests that swept Iran in the aftermath of the disputed 2009 presidential election. The film brings together clandestinely sent e-mails, online videos and footage shot by protesters in the midst of demonstrations. FRAGMENTS OF A REVOLUTION is, of necessity, a highly unconventional documentaryone in which the director relies on anonymous correspondents within Iran and on YouTube footage. We alternate between events in Tehran and the anonymous director's attempts to make sense of themuntil the two storylines converge in early 2010. As the protest movement grows, we are privy to the experiences of those on the ground: women picking up rocks to hand to protesters; people secretly filming police as they beat people; marchers coming under fire from rooftop snipers. Finally, the protests die down, and the forced confessions and show trials begin. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 15, 2012
