Filmmakers remember death of Neda

On June 2009, Iranian woman Neda Agha-Soltan was killed in the streets of Tehran during the Iranian election protests.

Her death was captured on video by bystanders and within hours was broadcast on the internet, bringing global attention to the dissent surrounding the country's rigged elections.

The 26-year-old became a symbol of freedom for the millions in Iran who want an end to the country's repressive state.

The Iranian government responded with claims that Neda was alive and living in Greece, and then later, that she had been killed by the doctor who witnessed her death.
