Inside the Iranian Uprising


In this documentary, FRONTLINE uses protestor footage to take viewers inside the uprising in Iran after the death of a young woman who was in police custody, accused of breaking the Islamic regime’s strict, gendered dress code. More than 500 Iranians were killed in the ensuing crackdown, including 72 children, and these citizen videos provide unique documentation of the events, given press restrictions in the country.
