Transit Tehran : young Iran and its inspirations ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
"Tehran is a city of contradictions. Its swollen population of fourteen million and upwards contains the religious, the irreligious and the simply indifferent. Located on a major fault line, it is nevertheless in the throes of a construction boom. While regular demonstrations after Friday prayers call for the death of Great Satan America, Iranians of all ages enjoy a long-standing love affair with Western luxury brands. Among the hip and fashionable, the veil has morphed from cover-up to come-on, and the young women in colourful scarves and heavy makeup are increasingly targeted by the female officers of the Special Guidance Patrols. Transit Tehran: Young Iran and Its Inspirations is an original anthology of writing and images primarily featuring the generation of photojournalists who came of age during the reformist movement. Newsha Tavakolian, Abbas Kowsari, Javad Montazeri and Omid Salehi continue to document the social transformation of their country despite the government's mass closures of newspapers and magazines. Unexpected facets of urban experience are explored in the art of Sadegh Tirafkan, the new journalism of Asieh Amini, and the short stories of Alireza Mahmoodi-Iranmehr. Transit Tehran also celebrates the long tradition of artistic and cultural resistance that has influenced young Iranians, noticeably in the work of veteran writer and editor Masoud Behnoud, premier satirist and cartoonist Ardeshir Mohassess, and photographers Kaveh Golestan and Mohsen Rastani. The Internet, youth and fashion culture and the homegrown trends of the Islamic Republic fuel the city's paradoxes its pains as well as its obvious pleasures. Sunk in permanent smog, tangled in traffic jams, suffused with the threat of war and political unrest, life in Tehran is chaotic and unpredictable. Its passions and preoccupations make it a city like no other." -- Book cover.

"Since 2004, the war in Iraq has become impossibly dangerous for journalists. Few remain there and fewer still venture outside the Green Zone or work unembedded. In this powerful documentary we meet some reporters and photographers who are covering events. Among them are Canadian Scott Taylor and Turkish journalist Zeynep Tugrul, who were kidnapped and tortured by an Al-Queda-related group in Tal Afar, one of the most hazardous spots in Iraq. They managed to talk their way out! We also meet Iraqis covering the war and see how the violence against reporters affects them as well. Several award-winning photographers from The New York times, The Guardian and Newsweek contribute their incredible stories. Indeed, the targeting of media professionals in Iraq has changed war journalism itself." -- Container.

Moordenaar in naam van Allah by Maziar Bahari ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2003 in Iranian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Documentaire. Zestien vrouwen werden er vermoord, tussen juli 2000 en juli 2001 in de Iraanse stad Mashad. Alle slachtoffers, op één na, waren gearresteerd geweest wegens prostitutie en drugsgebruik. Toen de politie de moordenaar opspoorde, een 39-jarige aannemer, gaf hij als reden dat hij de moorden vanuit zijn religieuze overtuiging had begaan. In deze documentaire praat Maziar Bahari met de familieleden van de moordenaar en zijn slachtoffers, maar ook met de moordenaar Saeed Haneis zelf. Haneis verwerpt 'prostitutie en ander immoreel gedrag' en heeft besloten er zelf iets aan te doen omdat de autoriteiten niet genoeg actie ondernemen. De gesprekken onthullen de dubbelzinnige complexiteit van de Iraanse maatschappij en de verschillende krachten die er werkzaam zijn

And along came a Spider ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 and held by 1 library worldwide
Between July 2000 and July 2001, 16 women were murdered in the holy Iranian city Mashhad, all but one of them with a prior incarceration for prostitution or drug-related charges. When 39-year-old Saeed Hanaei was arrested and then confessed to the killings, he proudly claimed his actions were in accordance with holy teachings of preventing vice and promoting virtue. Featuring a chilling first-person prison interview with Hanaei, the documentary tells the story of Iran's infamous "spider killings" - named for the way he drew victims into a deadly web. The case provoked a debate between reformers who condemned the authorities for failing to catch him earlier and some conservatives who shared the killer's disgust with a rise in prostitution.

Documentaire. Drie jaar na de Amerikaanse inval in Irak zijn inmiddels al ruim 100 journalisten in deze oorlog omgekomen.

Om deze reden kiezen journalisten er steeds vaker voor om "embedded" te werken, hetgeen ten koste gaat van het principe van vrije nieuwsgaring.
