Roads were blocked and even the airport was temporarily shut down. Providing the soundtrack to this uprising were artists such as the Israeli music duo WC. In this programme they will sit down with the Iranian festival co-director (and child of the revolution himself) to talk about the role of Art in times of Revolution.
