Editorial Reviews

At the height of the protests following Iran s controversial presidential election this summer, a young woman named Neda Soltani was shot and killed on the streets of Tehran. Her death filmed on a cameraphone, then uploaded to the Web quickly became an international outrage, and Soltani became the face of a powerful movement that threatened the hardline government s hold on power. With the help of a unique network of correspondents in and out of the country, FRONTLINE investigates the life and death of the woman whose image remains a potent symbol for those who want to keep the reform movement alive. The film also explores a number of unanswered questions in the aftermath of the greatest upheaval in Iran since the 1979 revolution: How many were arrested and killed as the security forces attempted to contain the growing protest movement? To what extent was the presidential vote manipulated? What is the nature of the reported divisions among Iran s ruling elites?

Well before I start this review, I will start off by saying that I am no expert in Iran. I am going by what news and general consensus is and news shows like Frontline to talk about Iran.

This episode details the murder of Neda Agha Soltan. You may have remembered her face during the summer of last year (it's hard not to) as her death was aired on air on Tv and broadcast to the world. Neda's death reminded Americans and other nations why Iran is a place that should not be ignored and a place with officials that should be watched very closely. Now that's half the story here. No the other story is learning about this lady Nega. Frontline gives you all the details about her life and how her death was pretty much unwarranted and an act of terror by the Basij. The Basij is a paramilitary, militia force. The Basij don't stop though with Neda's death. Neda's family for instance isn't even allowed to hold a proper ceremony for her. Any of her friends or family who speak out are punished severely and are threatened with death. Neda's boyfriend, Caspian, we learn eventually has to flee Iran.

As we see, it seems to be customary rule that anybody who voices an opinion about the government, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or officials in power are dealt with through violent means to silence them. Other times the military and government do unethical things to erase any sort of hint of dissidence against them.

For example, when several protesters wrote Neda's name as a remembrance, the government keeps on erasing it. Later the government sickeningly tries to label Neda as a terrorist to excuse her murder.

Protesters against Mahmoud , as it's well documented here, don't like the guy for rigging the elections in Iran.

By Gus Venegas on February 23, 2013
PBS's influential documentary series "Frontline" explores the death of Neda Agha Soltan, a beautiful young Iranian woman killed while watching a protest of the controversial and fraudulent 2009 Iranian presidential election. Neda's death was filmed on a cell phone and uploaded to the Internet, documenting the extent of the political turmoil in Iran and how new methods of communication are changing the way news is reported. This documentary is about an oppressive regime using violence to stay in power. The Ayatollah had the option to end the strife with a recount, but he did not; his siding with Ahmadinejad showed just how out of touch he was not only with the public but also with his own position (which is supposedly to temper the power of the president). Ahmadinejad isnt a religious man; none of this has to do with being a Muslim. It has *everything to do with power.*
