The group Iranian Artists in Exile have released an evocative three minute film and an open letter to the world, explaining the uprising in Iran and asking for support. The letter reads in part,

“As you read these words, the people in Iran have taken to the streets in nationwide protests. Despite brutal government suppression tactics the Iranian people are courageously fighting for their rights. As antiriot police batons crush the bones of demonstrators whose only protest is election fraud, Iranians are screaming for the world to hear them: WE DENOUNCE MAHMOOD AHMADINEJAD!”
