Elections Under Threat is a video documentary about the recent parliamentary elections in Iran. Produced for Aljazeera English, the documentary shows a side of Iranian politics rarely seen in the Western media. Elections Under Threat portrays the people and candidates most closely involved, and it also offers a unique glimpse into the struggles for democracy in a nation under threat from the Western World
Produced by filmmakers Kouross Esmaeli and Richard Rowley of Big Noise Films (www.bignoisefilms.org), the 22-minute documentary was filmed in March of 2008 and will be airing on Aljazeera English in a few weeks. Since Aljazeera has been kept off of American television, this will be an exclusive screening in the US.
