A thousand kilometers south of Tehran, a nomadic tribe struggles to survive surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of stark Persian desert and mountain landscapes. In Shiraz, an aging revolutionary subverts a system that betrayed the dreams of an entire generation of radicals. And in Tehran, a young intellectual fights the soul-crushing ennui of a daily existence without true freedom.
Shot secretly without the permission of the Iranian government, Iran: Voices of the Unheard reveals the lives of those living under the scrutiny of a repressive regime, silenced by their elected representatives. The film examines a day in the life of three very distinct groups, all of whom share a sense of alienation and despair, shedding light on the upheavals triggered by the June 2009 elections, and culminating in disturbing footage of bloody street protests that stunned the world.
