Iran's Young RebelsStreaming Video - 2010
With nearly three-quarters of its population under the age of 30, Iran is experiencing a "quiet revolution" as young men and women chafe against the restraints imposed upon them by their country's traditional regime. In this compelling program, correspondent Evan Solomon speaks with anti-government musicians, a female race car driver, student dissidents testing the limits of legal tolerance, and others as he travels to the vibrant markets of Tehran, rock music clubs that are literally underground, a drug treatment center that deals with Iran's burgeoning addiction problem, and an aesthetic plastic surgery operation. Viewers also hear from the man behind government-sanctioned pop music, who agrees with censorship policies, and from Iran's "Father of the Internet," who denies that censorship exists at all.
