Behind the Blue Screen

Stories from behind the Blue Screen.

Although a flood of news reaches us daily, we don’t hear a lot of new stories from Iran. The country has just a few foreign correspondents left and many stories are being censored. Meanwhile Iran’s young population is well educated and they’re constantly traveling to Europe. Why not ask them to make video-selfies. And pass them on to someone else, who shares a story of his own. Storytellers can tell personal stories because of a special app that covers their face. Using the same face recognition software that usually limits our freedom.
