DEADLINE EXTENDED: KEEP SENDING!
Are you proud to be Iranian? You should be! We’re going to make a movie and if you are truly proud to be Iranian then you should be in it. It is time to remind the world that Iranian people are not responsible for the shameful behaviour of the regime in Iran.
What do I have to do?
Make a short movie clip – use your mobile phone or digital camera – of you saying “I am PROUD to be Iranian! BUT I am ASHAMED of the Iranian regime because.. (then name one thing that you know the regime are responsible for that makes you feel truly ashamed and disgusted)” Get your friends and family involved too – they all deserve to be part of this!
“I am PROUD to be Iranian! BUT I am ASHAMED of the Iranian regime’s behavior towards political prisoners”
Do I have to show my face?
No, you can hide or cover your face, or hold a poster or image in front of your face. Or do any other creative thing that you wish. It would be best to record your normal voice so that people can understand what you are saying.
Do I have to speak in Persian, English, or what?
You can speak in any language you like. If you also hold up a poster with your statement in English that would be GREAT because it will help spread your message to even more people!
Do I have to be Iranian?
If you are not Iranian, but you still want to take part, please do. Change the phrase to say “I am not an Iranian, but on behalf of..” then either state the name of an Iranian, for example Neda Agha Soltan, or a political prisoner in Iran [see below for a list of names] or a group “..I am ASHAMED of the Iranian regime because.. (state your reason)”
“I am not an Iranian but on behalf of the Mourning Mothers I am ASHAMED of the Iranian regime for the arrest and imprisonment of Majid Tavakoli”
Do I have to add background music or effects to my video clip?
No, all that will be done when the finished video is created.

Deadline: 1 April / 12 Farvardin LATEST
