Iran: a nation of bloggers

Iran: a Nation of Bloggers explores how the digital world allows many Iranians access to ideas and freedom of expression they haven’t had for close to thirty years. Blogging is, in essence, a means of revolution.
Aaron Chiesa has created this animation about mass media, internet evolution and progress and its repercussion in Iran, when the country was inside a war conflict... We recomend you this document, very nice rythm, expression, care and love in the idea...

As it's explained in Vimeo channel:
A project targeted for audience in new media journalism and socio-political issues.

This motion video turned into a viral campaign that reached a social impact with an impressive exposition inside important websites such as: Motionographer.com, boingboing.net, digg.com, motionspire.com, the middle east Al Jazeera TV channel, and BBC news.

And as it's explained to in Readwrite website:

Millions of young bloggers are challenging the conservative government of Iran, at great personal risk. The following "infographic" video from the Vancouver Film School tells this story powerfully in just 2 minutes.

It's reminiscent of the recent film Persepolis and helps put "social media" in a much more serious context than people often presume it goes on in.
