Today we speak with award-winning journalist Tara Kangarlou about her new film, “Beyond the Electronic Curtain,” and the issue of Internet censorship in Iran.

Beyond the Electronic Curtain” documents the effects of unrelenting censorship on Iranian society. Through the stories of the many journalists in Iran who have been imprisoned for doing their job, the film provides a glimpse into a country where people from all walks of life are deprived of their right to freedom of speech.

The film will premier in Washington DC on January 25, 2013. For details, please visit here.
