Iran, veiled appearances( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Persian and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depicts contemporary Iran at a turning point in its history, exposing both an extreme fundamentalism being fostered by its leadership and the seeds of change in its youth culture. The film looks equally at those convinced of a radical Islam and at those who aspire to more freedom. The Iranians, having confirmed their desire for change during the presidential elections, have been conned of their meagre conquests by the power of the most conservative Islamic fundamentalists. It is they who have firm control of the army, the courts and the media and who haven't hesitated to resort to political assassination to shut off any freedom of speech."
