Green is the color of hope.

The election in 2009 was about change things, but contrary to all expectations, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was set in office. A collage illustrating the events and the stance of the people behind the rebellion: their initial hope and curiosity, fear, and the courage to continue to fight

Ali et Mehrdad tentent de fuir l'Iran avec leurs cousins Azi, 7 ans, et Arman, 5 ans, dans le but de les ramener à leurs parents qui vivent en Autriche. Mais ils doivent d'abord passer par la Turquie pour attendre un hypothétique visa qui tarde à venir. Ils font la connaissance d'autres réfugiés iraniens : un couple et leur petit garçon cherchant à prouver aux pouvoirs publics qu'ils sont persécutés pour des motifs politiques ou encore un professeur et un jeune kurde qui surmontent leurs difficultés quotidiennes grâce à un incoryable sens de l'humour ... Des hommes et des femmes qui espèrent de toutes leurs forces entrer en Europe, terre de liberté ... (jaquette)

Fariba kann nicht widerstehen. Sie riskiert alles und offenbart ihr Geheimnis. Das Glück scheint zum Greifen nah ..." (Source : Jaquette)
45 Minuten bis Ramallah : Roman by Gabriel Bornstein( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Typisch Rafik Abu-Rabah. Er sitzt in einem Ruderboot, das langsam untergeht, und der Mann, der das 20-cm-Loch in den Boden des Bootes geschossen hat, steht mit einer Walther-Pistole am Ufer und zielt auf Rafiks Kopf. Da klingelt das Handy. Es ist Rafiks Mutter. Sein Bruder Jamal heiratet und Rafik soll zur Hochzeit nach Jerusalem kommen. Da ist es schon besser, in Hamburg zu bleiben und eine Kugel in den Kopf zu bekommen, findet Rafik. Ein literarisches Roadmovie zwischen Hamburg, Ost-Jerusalem und Ramallah. Urkomisch, komödiantisch, burlesk. Der schwarze Humor als Waffe der Literatur, wenn die Politik keine Lösung weiss. Gabriel Bornstein wurde 1948 in Afula, Israel, geboren. Nach seinem Ingenieurstudium verlagerte Bornstein 1983 seine Aktivitäten nach Deutschland und studierte an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg. Er lehrte Dramaturgie an mehreren Universitäten und gründete 1997 mit anderen die Drehbuchwerkstatt Hamburg. 2003 drehte Bornstein seinen Debütfilm "Dezemberküsse". Sein Drehbuch "45 Minuten nach Ramallah" wurde von Ali Samadi verfilmt (Kinostart: Dezember 2013). Bornstein arbeitete an dem Stoff weiter und machte daraus einen Roman
Women without men = Zanān bidūn-i mardān( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Persian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iranian drama based on the novel by Shahrnoush Parsipour. The film traces the intertwining lives of four women - Fakhri (Arita Shahrzad), Zarin (Orsolya Toth), Faezeh (Pegah Ferydoni) and Munis (Shabnam Toloui) - against the turbulent political backdrop of Iran's 1953 coup, in which the CIA helped to overthrow the democratically elected government and reinstate the Shah to power. As turmoil takes over in the streets of Tehran, each of the women seeks to be liberated from her own private predicament. Fakhri scandalously leaves her husband and buys a magical orchard in the outskirts of the city, and for a while the women find seclusion within its walls - but it is only a matter of time before the world outside makes its mark as Iran's history takes a tragic turn

Chris is a college student in Berlin, looking for a roommate to share his grubby digs. He meets Yunes, an engineering student from Yemen, and the two set up house together and become fast friends.

After a falling-out with his German girlfriend, Nora, Yunes undergoes a conversion to fundamentalist Islam and joins a Muslim study group. On September 7, 2001 he completely disappears from Chris' life. A few days later Chris and his girlfriend, Julia, watch with the rest of the world as the World Trade Center towers crumble and begin to wonder if Yunes was actually a terrorist "sleeper."

Le printemps de Téhéran : l'histoire d'une révolution 2.0 by Ali Samadi Ahadi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses actual blog entries, tweets and cell phone video, along with eyewitness accounts, expert interviews and animated sequences to tell the story behind Iran's youth-driven Green Revolution and the government's violent response. The film captures the spirit of hope and possibility that united the protesters and that has since spread across the Middle East ... Director Ali Samadi Ahadi used thousands of entries in Iranian blogs and social media websites to create two fictional characters, students whose hopes, fears and experiences with terror at the hands of government security thugs filter through the movie. These deeply moving fictional 'storylines' have been animated and supplemented with interviews with prominent human rights campaigners and exiled Iranians to complete a picture of the tragedy of the Green Revolution
